LGBT+ History month is a chance to highlight the history of LGBT+ people in the UK. It started in 2005 and the original aim was to teach young people in schools about the history of the LGBT+ Rights Movement. It is now also celebrated by other organisations and promotes a society inclusive for everyone regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Whilst there are many eminent scientists from the LGBT+ community there is very little in the way of LGBT+ history in medical physics and clinical engineering. So we need to start making our own and therefore have asked some of our members to share their own personal history and experiences.
