What is GLBTQ Awareness?

GLBTQ History (Awareness) Month is a month-long annual international and national observance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer History, and the history of the gay rights and related civil rights movements.

October was chosen because of the recognized National Coming Out Day already established as a widely known event on October 11. In addition, October commemorated the first march on Washington by GLBTQ people in 1979.
