More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
Equality Forum Launches GLBT History Month
Equality Forum has launched a campaign, endorsed by GLAAD and many other national organizations, to bring attention to 2008 GLBT History Month.
Each day this month the website will feature a video highlighting a different LGBT icon.
"The 31 Icons, living or dead, are selected for their achievements in their field of endeavor, their status as a national hero, or their significant contribution to GLBT civil rights. Equality Forum solicits nominations from state, national and international organizations and leaders."
Along with the videos will be biographies, downloads and other resources.
We encourage you to visit the 2008 GLBT History Month website and learn about these 31 GLBT icons.
