Are you ready for LGBT History Month? With 1001 Carpet Cleaner, you can do all the crafts your heart desires.

February is LGBT History Month, and it’s for everyone. The month-long festivity observes lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history and identities and celebrates their contribution to culture.


LGBT History

From the founding of Stonewall in 1989 to the removal of Section 28 from British law, there are many pivotal moments in LGBT history, and the celebrations allow for the chance to reflect on these and pay homage to LGBT pioneers like James Baldwin and Audre Lorde. Writer and activist, Baldwin, was a trailblazer and wrote this memorable quote in his 1956 novel, Giovanni’s Room: “Love him and let him love you. Do you think that anything else under heaven really matters?”

As well as reflecting on activists like Baldwin, LGBT History Month is a great time for fun and merriment. There are lots of events that take place across the UK for LGBT History month, but if you prefer to celebrate in the comfort of your own home with friends, we’ve got just the thing to get your home sorted, as well as some fun craft ideas to get your home looking festive!

  • Paint your own jacket or t-shirt in rainbow colours
  • Paint a feature wall in your home with all the colours of the rainbow
