October is LGBT History Month—an annual observance of the histories, cultures, and contributions of LGBTQIA2S+ communities.

And queer history is our history. 

We love the commitment of the U-M community in centering queer and trans joy, histories, and experiences through their educational events, social gatherings, and discussions. 

Departments and student organizations will be hosting events throughout October—here, we've created a one-stop shop to find what's happening on campus for LGBT History Month.
