As George Chauncey, Professor of History at Yale University and author of the terrific, Gay New York: Gender, Urban Culture, and the Making of the Gay Male World, 1890-1940, observes, “LGBT History Month sends an important message our nation’s teachers, school boards, community leaders, and youth about the vital importance of recognizing and exploring the role of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people in American history.”
