Take this quiz to find out how much you actually know about LGBTQ+ history

School taught us nothing, so how much do you know really?


LGBTQ+ people have literally existed for the whole of human history, but it’s actually embarrassing how little we know about queer history. Much of this is down to schools, which taught us pretty much nothing about LGBT history – and now you can test how much of it you really know by taking this quiz.

But we can’t just blame it on school – whether you’re part of the community or an ally, it’s up to us all to do the work and educate ourselves about LGBTQ+ history, people and queer issues. Once you’ve taken this quiz, here’s a list of a load of films, documentaries and series you can watch to learn more about LGBT history.
