Welcome to the LGBT History Project: the encyclopedia of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans history in the United Kingdom. It was started in June 2011 and today it contains over 3,000 articles, covering British LGBT life from the 1st Century BC right up to the current day.

LGBT History Month is celebrated throughout February each year. The History Month theme for 2014 is “Music”, so we’ve created a Timeline of UK LGBT Music.
