Up The Arts: Can we still learn from LGBT History month? Founder Sue Sanders says it's more relevant than ever...
Sue Sanders is one of the UK’s most prominent LGBTQ+ rights campaigners and has been challenging the establishment for the last 40 years. It was alongside a teacher friend that she instigated the UK's first LGBT History month which they launched in the Tate in 2004. Since then it's acted as a catalyst for 1000's of events every February (and March in Northern Ireland) marking our LGBT+ past. Thomas met Sue in her home town of Broadstairs in Kent to discuss LGBT History month and ask Sue if she thinks it's still relevant today.
