On 24 May 1988, the United Kingdom introduced a nasty little clause, stating that a local authority “ shall not intentionally promote homosexuality or publish material with the intention of promoting homosexuality.” This was just 30 years ago.

If you think about it, 30 years aren’t really that long. Luckily, the UK needed only 12 to come to senses. With a procedure starting in February 2000, Section 28 was repealed, leading to a gigantic win for the LGBTQ+ community and human rights in general. And so, the UK LGBT History Month was established to celebrate that huge milestone.

As part of our series to celebrate LGBT History Month and diversity, today we are looking at the best marketing and advertising campaigns ever made to champion diversity and inclusion
