York LGBT Forum Twitter Takeover

York LGBT Forum will be taking over York Castle Museum’s Twitter Saturday 27th June!

York LGBT Forum will be taking over our twitter to share the work they’ve been doing in York, share their personal stories and respond to some of the objects in York Museums Trust collections. They actively promote awareness and understanding of LGBT people’s needs to enable full participation in society and works with many others to reduce the fear of crime and bullying, particularly in schools, the workplace and in later life. It also encourages greater participation in the prevention and detection of homophobic, transphobic and biphobic discrimination. The LGBT forum aims to improve people’s wellbeing and sense of community.

York LGBT has over 30 projects ongoing in York and North Yorkshire! They support marginalised LGBTQ+ people in the community.  York LGBT History Month aims to raise awareness of LGBTQ+ people throughout history by hosting York LGBT History Month in February. York LGBT organises a programme which is full of history and celebrates and raises awareness of LGBTQ+ people. 

York LGBT Forum and York LGBT History Month are registered charities in York.
