Fun Fact from Across the Pond

It's LGBT History Month in the U.K! The month of February was chosen to commemorate the month in which Section 28 of the Local Government Act (1988) was abolished by the whole country in 2003. Section 28 was a statute that stated: "shall not intentionally promote homosexuality or publish material with the intention of promoting homosexuality" or "promote the teaching in any maintained school of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship."

LGBT History Month in the U.S takes place in October.
