February is African American History Month a time where we pause, remember, celebrate and reflect on the power that is Black culture and history. It is a time to recognize the contributions of our African American siblings and to recall the struggle they have endured throughout history, despite being key enablers to this country's success.
As members of the LGBTQ+ community, we know all too well of the pioneering role our siblings played in our community's history. From the modern day fight for civil rights with Marsha P Johnson, Bayard Rustin, and Tyron Garner to the visibility they brought to the LGBTQ+ community in theater, film, TV, music and sports, such as with Lorraine Hansberry, Lee Daniels, Laverne Cox, Lil Nas X, and Sheryl Swoops, many of our community's firsts are because of brave people like them, some known to us, many lost to the pages of history.
While we honor the month of February as African American History Month, we carry forward a commitment to listen more, speak up more, and celebrate our African American siblings because as our collective history shows us, Black history is LGBTQ+ history is American history.
