October is LGBT History Month. The month of observance was first organized in 1994 by high school teacher Rodney Wilson to coincide with National Coming Out Day (Oct. 11) and was meant to highlight the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights movement.
In 2006, the Equality Forum began promoting the annual commemoration by featuring a different LGBT icon each day.
“This is the 7th anniversary of LGBT History Month. There are a total of 217 Icons that inspire pride in our heroes and our impressive national and international accomplishments,” said Malcolm Lazin, Equality Forum executive director, in a statement.
Throughout the month of October, the Equality Forum will highlight LGBT heroes in media, government and every day life who have had an impact on our civil rights movement. Visit www.thegavoice.com every day to meet these LGBT leaders.
Today, Equality Forum recognizes Islamist reformist, feminist and author Irshad Manji:
