LGBT History Month Icons

By Charlotte Robinson, October 02, 2014
In October since 2006 LGBT History Month has provided role models, teaches history, builds community to make an important civil rights statement about our LGBT community’s important contributions. LGBT History Month has announced its 31 LGBT icons for 2014. Each day in October an Icon is featured with a video, bio, downloadable images & other educational resources. Malcolm Lazin, founder of LGBT History Month & Executive Director of Equality Forum stated, “The 279 Icons, including the 31 Icons for 2014, demonstrate the impressive & diverse international impact of the LGBT community.” George Chauncey, Samuel Knight Professor of American History & Chair of the History Department, Yale University added, “LGBT History Month sends an important message to our nation’s teachers, school boards, community leaders & youth about the vital importance of recognizing and exploring the role of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people in American history." The LGBT community is the only community worldwide that is not taught its history at home, in public schools or in religious institutions. LGBT History Month provides role models, builds community & makes the civil rights statement of our extraordinary national & international contributions. Gay and Lesbian History Month was endorsed by GLAAD, the Human Rights Campaign, the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force, the National Education Association & other national organizations. WATCH VIDEO:
