Celebrating and highlighting the history and achievements of 2SLGBTQIA+ communities at McGill and beyond.
Queer History Month at McGill was first celebrated in October 2018 as LGBTQ2I+ History Month. Founded by Meryem Benslimane, Equity Education Advisor, it is the first celebration of its kind at a Canadian university.
Through a series of screenings, panels, workshops, and community events, Queer History Month aims to raise awareness, advance education, and increase visibility of 2SLGBTQIA+ communities by recognizing their history and contributions, building bridges, and bringing together McGill students, staff, faculty, and alumni and Montréal community members.
