Thank you so much for writing about this. Black LGBT don’t get their props, and I’m a huge fan of James Baldwin.
It isn’t often you hear about the accomplishments and historical moments of our LGBT brothas and sistas during this time of year. So, I felt that it’s time to help give them their due and making history, black history.
As with my previous BHM article, the list will feature a few notable and brief mentions. Please check out more information on these and other black LGBT history makers and prominent individuals.
Alice Walker – Civil rights icon and author of The Color Purple for which she won a Pulitzer Prize.
Patrik Ian Polk – An openly gay film director who is known for his films on the African American LGBT experience and relationships.
Kye Allums – The first Division I openly transgender athlete in NCAA sports history. Today, Kye is a transgender advocate and the founder of Project I Am Enough, a project dedicated to encouraging self-love & self-definition for everyone.
