LGBT+ Equality

As part of our commitment to supporting equality, diversity, and inclusivity within History, in February 2019 the Royal Historical Society created a new working group to investigate the experiences of LGBT+ historians, and the teaching of LGBT+ histories. Between July and September 2019 the group ran a survey, which attracted 852 responses.

On 28 September 2020 the Working Group published its LGBT+ Histories and Historians report, together with a set of accompanying online resources.
