October is GLBT History month. I've always found that a little curious. I kinda thought it should be June. But, hey, this gives us two months -- and good weather ones at that. June is Pride Month and October is Gay History Month.
This site: http://www.glbthistorymonth.com/glbthistorymonth/2008/icon.cfm?id=2 has lots of information.
It's an effort that was started in 2006 and dedicates each day to a different GLBT icon.
Here in Philly we'll celebrate with Out Fest on Sunday October 12 and I'll bring my trusty camera again for some of the more titillating sights.
