Equality Forum, the national gay lobbying organization, will celebrate queer history this October by honoring a different GLBT leader for every day of National GLBT History Month. Equality Forum will produce a video, biography, and bibliography for each of the leaders selected and distribute them free of charge to media organizations, nonprofit groups, and educational institutions around the country.
"Our goal is to help teach gay history, highlight role models, and enhance understanding of the important national and international contributions of the GLBT," said Malcolm Lazin, Equality Forum's executive director, in a statement.
All GLBT persons who have distinguished themselves are eligible for nomination. Nominees will be reviewed by GLBT History Month national cochairs the Reverend Nancy Wilson, moderator of the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches, and Professor Kenji Yoshino, deputy dean for intellectual life at Yale Law School.
