LGBT History Month sparks this October. The annual month stresses the vital importance of recognizing and exploring the role of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people in American history.

According to the creators of this annual campaign, the LGBT community is the only community worldwide that is not taught its history at home, in public schools or in religious institutions. LGBT History Month provides role models, builds community and makes the civil rights statement about our extraordinary national and international contributions.

Each year LGBT History Month celebrate achievements of 31 lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender Icons. An LGBT Icon is featured each day in October along with a video, bio, bibliography, downloadable images and other resources.
