What better way to celebrate the 100th episode of a podcast about LGBTQ+ history than to chat with the man who put LGBTQ+ history on the map, er, calendar, Rodney Wilson, Educator & Founder of LGBTQ+ History Month.
Rodney Wilson founded LGBTQ+ History Month in 1994, the same year he made national headlines when he became the first K-12 teacher in Missouri to come out publicly as gay. His story made news in popular magazines, and he was featured in interviews on Dateline & The Rikki Lake Show. Rodney has his own mark in LGBTQ+ history, and his story is definitely worth a listen.
