Sir Ian McKellen to Become a Companion of Honour

Sir Ian McKellen, CBE, patron of LGBT History Month, affectionately known as Serena (a nickname given to him by Stephen Fry), will soon be able to add another honour to the long list of those he has already received. HM The Queen, in her New Year Honours, has made him a Companion of Honour (CH) for services to Drama and to Equality.

The LGBT History Month team would like to extend their congratulations to Sir Ian and thank him again for his support.

Forty years on when afar and asunder ..... deserted are we who held you in such esteem.
