Know Your LGBT History - LGBTs who are changing the world for the better

As expected, GLSEN's Day of Silence was a massive success this year and so I want to end it with a positive note.

When I was a young African-American, my heritage and history was drilled into me by adults seeking to make me realize how much potential I had for greatness.

And I think the same needs to be done for not only our lgbt youth but also lgbt adults. We may not be related by blood, but lgbts are related through our similar struggles.

We have potential to change the world for the better and that's something we must never forget. Enjoy this video montage of our lgbt brothers and sisters who have done positive things in their life, thereby enriching the lives of others. Let's never forget what they did and especially the simple fact that we are capable of doing the same:

GLSEN's Day of Silence is about safety and love

Today is GLSEN's Day of Silence.

In the past days, I focused on how the religious right are pathetically attempting to undermine this day.

But not today. Today, I want to present a series of video as just a way to remind us all - me included - what this day is all about.

It's not about indoctrination or "forcing people to accept homosexuality." The Day of Silence is not about none of the junk the right likes to claim it's about. It's about our children. Our children. And even though during this day, many of them will choose not to speak, please take a gander at this video montage, listen, and pay attention:
