Celebrating and highlighting the history and achievements of 2S&LGBTQIA+ 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 2S&LGBTQIA+ communities by recognizing their history and contributions, building bridges, and bringing together McGill students, staff, faculty, and alumni and Montréal community members.

We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous peoples whose presence marks this territory on which peoples of the world now gather.
