Our history and worth fighting for

LGBT History Month in the UK is held in February but in the US GLBT History Month is celebrated in October. This video demonstrates a list of famous LGBT people from around the world. I had the privelige of meeting Sunil Pant, the openly gay Nepalese MP recently and can confirm that he is an inspirational figure. With recent developments in New York and elsewhere in the US concerning homophobia and a noticeable increase in homophobic violence there is a real need for events like this and for the LGBT community never to forget the struggles we have fought and the struggles we still have to fight for equality.
