LGBT+ History Month - February 2024

In a vibrant and inclusive celebration, college campuses across the nation are gearing up for LGBT+ History Month 2024, themed "Medicine: #UnderTheScope." This year, the focus is on recognizing and commemorating the remarkable contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans individuals in the fields of medicine and healthcare.

As the rainbow flags flutter on campus grounds, students are invited to join us in celebrating the often-overlooked trailblazers who have left an indelible mark on the healthcare landscape.

Breaking Down the Theme: #UnderTheScope

This year's theme, "Medicine: #UnderTheScope," emphasizes the crucial role of LGBT+ individuals in the medical and healthcare fields. It aims to bring attention to their achievements, challenges, and the ongoing pursuit of equality within these professions. By placing the contributions of LGBT+ individuals "under the scope," the organizers hope to magnify their impact and foster a deeper understanding of the intersectionality within the medical community.

Why it Matters

Celebrating LGBT+ History Month in the context of medicine is not just about acknowledging the past but also about inspiring the future. By recognizing the achievements of LGBT+ individuals in healthcare, we encourage a more inclusive and equitable environment for the next generation of medical professionals.

As we unite under the rainbow banner this February, they are not only celebrating diversity but also sending a powerful message that everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity, deserves a seat at the table in the ever-evolving world of medicine.

So, join the movement, lend your voice, and let's celebrate the invaluable contributions of LGBT+ individuals in medicine - a field that is truly #UnderTheScope this February!
