LGBT History Month is held in October to commemorate the first two gay pride marches on Washington, occurring in both 1979 and 1987. LGBT stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender.
Rodney Wilson, a history teacher in Missouri, started the event in 1994 as a reaction to the lack of gay and lesbian history in educational textbooks. During the month of October, we reflect back on gay and lesbian history, as well as educate the public about current issues facing the LGBT community.
