It’s love month & UK LGBTQ+ History Month, too
Welcome to PinkUk’s February news. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner on 14 February, we hope all those looking for partners or celebrating their partnership have a great time.
February is also LGBT+ History Month in the UK. So some history on why it takes place this month: in February 2003, a notorious, homophobic law called ‘Section 28’, introduced by the Tory government in the 1980s at the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, was finally repealed.
The law forbade the education or promotion of LGBTQ+ issues or same-sex relationships by local councils, which then ran most services such as state schools and municipal libraries.
It has echoes of a new law in Florida dubbed ‘Don’t Say Gay’ which imposes restrictions on what schools can discuss on LGBTQ+ issues. In the United States, LGBTQ+ History Month is commemorated in October to coincide with Coming Out Day. The theme in the UK this year is #BehindTheLens which celebrates the LGBTQ+ communities’ contribution to cinema, film and photography. It highlights the legacy of LGBTQ+ film directors, cinematographers, screenwriters and other film professionals. You can read more about this in a new article on LGBTQ+ history looking at the persecution of gay wartime code breaker Alan Turing.
We also have an emergency appeal from akt, a UK youth charity which helps young homeless LGBTQ+ people access safe accommodation. Akt is named after Albert Kennedy, a gay 16- year-old who died in 1989 after falling off a multi-storey car park in Manchester in what appeared to be a homophobic attack.

Have a great, love-filled month and pinkest love from our team xx

Well, that’s clear!
The venue offers much more than just a sauna. It boasts a fully-equipped bar, a dance floor, jacuzzi, swimming pool and “a lot of playgrounds for adult males” as well as two saunas.
