LGBT History Month 2015
October is LGBT History Month. The website http://www.lgbthistorymonth.com is observing the month by featuring the contributions and achievements of thirty one important gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered figures. Each day in October, a new LGBT figure will be featured with a video, bio, resources, and downloads.
Below is the list of the 2015 icons who will be featured. To the people who say "Well, I don't care if (insert famous LGBT person's name here) is/was gay. It's none of my business who (famous LGBT person) sleeps/slept with," I say that it is important to know in order to combat the still-persistent belief present in many quarters of the country that gay men or lesbians or bisexual or transgendered individuals are sick, useless, incapable of success, and have nothing to do with society or culture at large.
