LGBT History Month 2019 @ NPTC Group

 What is LGBT History Month?

 LGBT History Month aims to increase the visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, raise awareness of the challenges that LGBT+people still face, and call for everyone to contribute to an LGBT+ inclusive society.

 It is celebrated every February, to commemorate the 2003 abolition of Section 28, a law introduced in 1988 that banned schools and colleges from portraying homosexuality in a positive light.

Mis Hanes LGBT 2019 @ Grŵp NPTC

Beth yw Mis Hanes LGBT?

Mae Mis Hanes LGBT yn anelu at wneud pobl lesbiaidd, hoyw, deurywiol a thrawsrywiol (LGBT) yn fwy gweledol, codi ymwybyddiaeth o'r heriau y mae pobl LGBT yn dal i'w hwynebu ynghyd â galw ar bawb i gyfrannu at gymdeithas LGBT gynhwysol.

Fe'i dethlir bob mis Chwefror, i goffáu diddymu Adran 28 yn 2003 sef deddfwriaeth a gyflwynwyd ym 1988 a oedd yn gwahardd ysgolion a cholegau rhag portreadu cyfunrywioldeb yn gadarnhaol.
