Celebratory and inclusionary resources
This calendar is a selection of inclusionary and celebratory dates that can be used to raise awareness and promote understanding of LGBTQ+ people and issues.
It provides details of some relevant, and some fun, celebratory periods and explains how you can schedule a whole load of posts to cover the whole year in one go.
The 66-page timeline, full of fascinating snippets of information, celebrates and remembers those LGBTQ+ people who were connected in one way or another with the medical profession.

All Out! Dancing in Dulais – opens to YouTube. “The South Wales miners’ strike of 1984-1985 saw the formation of a curious alliance between a plucky group of young homosexuals from London and miners in Dulais Valley. In Dancing in Dulais, an initial wariness on the part of the young gays, the miners, and the miners’ families gives way, through sometimes delicate interactions, to a loving and purposeful solidarity. The unembellished videography captures well this fascinating-to-witness union of two disparate yet ultimately kindred groups. The “Pits and Perverts” benefit concert features the Bronski Beat.” PopcornQ Movies at PlanetOut.com. Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners Group. Editor: Jeff Cole
