Per Equality Forum in Philadelphia, PA: Starting today, an Icon will be featured every day in October. Each icon will be highlighted with a video, bio, bibliography, downloadable images, and other educational resources – all free of charge - at www.glbthistorymonth.com.
You can share Icon videos on your favorite social networking site or embed the videos on your Web site or blog. Once embedded, the video player automatically updates with that day’s featured Icon.
The resources for the 124 icons from GLBT History Month 2006 to 2009 are archived on the site and with the 31 Icons for 2010 can be used to create a GLBT History Month exhibit.
Equality Forum coordinates GLBT History Month. 2010 marks the 5th Anniversary of GLBT History Month. Equality Forum has created commemorative resources for GLBT History Month 2006 to 2010, including a special edition 5th Anniversary Poster. All 5th Anniversary resources are available on the site.
