Beginning in 1994 and now hosted by the Equality Forum, GLBT History Month is celebrated every October, featuring 31 GLBT icons living and dead. Focusing on their achievements and contributions to the GLBT community, each day we learn a little bit more about the history and courage of those who have gone before us. With such well known figures as Suze Orman and Rachel Maddow, this year’s GLBT History Month also features three hometown heroes from our own state of Texas.
