Welcome to LGBT History Month in the School of English! This is the hub for all our events this year. For LGBT History Month 2021 all the events will be held virtually.
If you are a student or staff member within the School of English and you are hosting an event for LGBT History Month 2021, please let us know! We'd love to feature as many events as possible.
We've joined up with our friends over in Libraries to bring you reading recommendations all through the month of February. Last year the Libraries Team asked for recommendations to build their list of LGBT+ titles and you delivered!
This year we're going to be spotlighting books on our Instagrams, and over @UoNEnglish we've got some personalised recommendations from members of staff!

In this talk, Dr Angela Zottola will discuss her research on the representation of trans people in newspapers. In her analysis, she pinpoints negative or harmful practices and discuss how the linguistic choices in newspapers can influence the way gender and sexual identities are understood in society. The paper focuses on the use of terminology and, generally speaking, on the type of discourses associated with trans people in the press.This online event is free to attend but requires advanced registration.
