What is LGBT
  History Month?

LGBT History Month was created in order to highlight lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history. In 1994, a group of U.S. education organizations designated October as LGBT History Month, leading to a 1995 resolution passed by the General Assembly of the National Education Association to include LGBT History Month on a list of its commemorative months. 

At BCTC Library, we celebrate this month in recognition of the diversity and inclusiveness it represents.
