Bayard Rustin: The Man Who Organized The March On Washington

The strategist behind the 1963 march will posthumously receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom this year. As a gay man, his position in the movement was questioned. But now he is considered "an amazing role model" for activists of color who are also gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.

Why Many LGBT People Have Started Using A New Pride Flag

A simultaneous un-coordinated shift in the symbol for the LGBT community is taking place due to an international focus on Black Lives Matters protests, vitriol in the UK press about trans lives, and the rainbow use for the NHS amid coronavirus.

User Clip: John Lewis on Doma - 1996

"Marriage is a basic human right. You cannot tell people they cannot fall in love...Why do you attack them? Why do you want to destroy the love they hold in their hearts? Why do you want to crush their hopes, their dreams...They have done no wrong. I will not turn my back on another American. I will not oppress my fellow human being. I fought too hard, and too long, against discrimination based on race and color, not to stand up against discrimination based on sexual orientation. I've known racism. I've known bigotry. This bill stinks of the same fear, hatred and intolerance." - Rep. John Lewis, speaking in opposition to the Defense of Marriage Act, 1996:

Today is International Non-Binary People's Day.

Non-binary is a spectrum of gender identities that are not exclusively masculine or feminine. At ECU we love when everyone feels included. Here are 5 ways to be gender inclusive with language.

Today is International Non-Binary Day!

"Telling our stories and being visible as non-binary people is incredibly important. For a long time, I didn't know it was possible to even be non-binary because of the lack of non-binary representation in the world around me. Knowing that there are lots of other non-binary folks out there — and that there always have been — is both empowering and joyful. For me, embracing my non-binary identity means that I'm able to be myself without compromising any part of who I am. Non-binary people are here, and we're here to stay." - Madeleine Roberts | HRC Assistant Press Secretary | Pronouns: They/Them/Theirs

July 14 is recognized around the world as an occasion to shine a light on those who identify as non-binary and celebrates the rich diversity of the community.

"Our elders tell us of people who are gifted among all beings because they carried Two Spirits; that of Male and of Female. It was told that there were Women who married other Women as well as Men who married other Men. These individuals were looked upon as a third gender and they were honored and respected as fundamental components of our ancient culture. Unfortunately, due to colonizing forces and influences, Two Spirit people have been lost in our consciousnesses..."

From the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture

From the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture

Today marks the Anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion. The riots that began #onthisday in 1969 sparked the modern LGBTQ+ Rights Movement.

African Americans in this community have made enormous achievements & contributions to global history and culture. Historical scholarship has unearthed a world of saloons, cabarets, speakeasies, rent parties, and drag balls that existed since the late 1800’s as spaces where African American LGBTQ identities were not only visible, but openly celebrated.

At the beginning of the 20th century, a distinctly Black LGBTQ culture took shape in Harlem. The Harlem Renaissance (1920-1935) was particularly influential to this process. The intellectual, cultural and artistic movement took the neighborhood by storm, bringing with it a flurry of literature, art, and music that centered black life. Many of the movement’s leaders were openly gay or identified as having nuanced sexualities including Angelina Weld Grimké, Claude McKay, Langston Hughes, Wallace Thurman, Alice Dunbar-Nelson, Alain Locke, and Richard Bruce Nugent among others.

Prior to 1973, homosexuality was considered a mental illness and something that was required to be treated. You could be fired from your job and/or jailed. Many people kept their sexual orientation hidden from their families and friends as a measure of safety. NYC’s Greenwich Village has historically African American origins—it was originally home to one of the largest freedmen populations in the country and called Africatown. In 1827, Freedom’s Journal was published as the 1st African American newspaper in the US.

The Stonewall Rebellion catalyzed the LGBTQ+ community to unite in a movement to seek equal rights for all people, no matter their sexual orientation or gender identity. African Americans started their own LGBTQ+ organizations to support their intersections. #APeoplesJourney #ANationsStory #SmithsonianPride

As Philadelphia mourns Dominique ‘Rem’mie’ Fells, Black trans lives still matter | Opinion

“I remember Nizah Morris, elegantly moving through what is called Philly’s Gayborhood. She was a beautiful Black transgender woman. I recall her kindness: “Hey baby,” she would say, greeting you as she passed by. Almost 20 years ago, I stumbled upon the neighborhood and was captivated by the boldness and beauty of Blackness—hers especially. But two years later, Morris, last seen with cops on December 22, 2002, died from a head injury on December 24, 2002 at Jefferson Hospital.”

- Abdul-Aliy Muhammad

Black transgender murders are a national and global problem that recent protests have highlighted.

This online hub has been developed with and for communities, with the technical and financial support from UNAIDS. We hope that you will all enjoy this resource and interact with its different features. And if you have a moment, please so share your feedback on your experience using this hub, and how we can improve it as it evolves.
