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 more than 850 responses. The group is now analysing this data and the comments from respondents, and is working on a Report to be published in 2020.

If you would like to get involved with the LGBT+ Group’s work please contact Dr Katherine Foxhall, RHS Research Communications Officer by email on
