This weekend catch the NAACP Image Awards, a showing of Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin and a special episode of Cyndi Lauper: Still So Unusual! Plus all new episodes of Malibu Country, Spartacus: War of the Damned, Girls and Downton Abbey.
Saturday, March 17 will mark the 100th birthday of visionary and civil rights leader Bayard Rustin. Rustin, an openly gay African American man, worked for more than 50 years as an advocate and strategist for human rights.
Today, on the GLAAD blog, we are taking the time to highlight the life of Bayard Rustin, as well as the lives of other 'brother outsiders' from our history, who dealt with both racism and homophobia as they paved the way for others.
Today marks the 44th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. And as we honor Dr. King’s vision of equality, IN THE LIFE, the only national LGBT issue-oriented television program, looks back at inspiring interviews with LGBT people and allies “who stood up, spoke out and made a difference in the fight for full LGBT equality.”
