February is LGBT History Month

February is LGBT History Month. UCU recognises that fighting for equal rights for LGBT people and opposing homophobia and transphobia are important aspects of our trade union work. The union has specific LGBT representatives on the National Executive (Laura Miles from our branch is the union’s FE LGBT rep) and has a Members Standing Committee made up of local LGBT activists whose role is to promote LGBT awareness in the union and in our institutions.
