October is GLBT History Month. “Beginning October 1, 2010, a new GLBT Icon is featured each day with a video, bio, bibliography, downloadable images and other resources” on glbthistorymonth.com.
Here is this year’s overview video featuring all 31 icons. Take a look and help us celebrate.
And be sure to stop by this blog where, after the recent news of several tragic teen suicides, Katiebabs blogged about her experience to help kids see “it gets better.” She and others are donating up to $775 for 500 comments to The Trevor Project and the Matthew Shepard Foundation. Please stop by and leave a comment to help.
After yet another teen suicide by a gay kid who was relentlessly bullied in high school, Dan Savage has started a new project: It Gets Better. He’s collecting YouTube videos of individuals talking about how it does get better after high school.
“If you’re gay or lesbian or bi or trans, and you’ve ever read about a kid like Billy Lucas and thought, “Fuck, I wish I could’ve told him that it gets better,” this is your chance. We can’t help Billy, but there are lots of other Billys out there—other despairing LGBT kids who are being bullied and harassed, kids who don’t think they have a future—and we can help them.”
