For far too long, LGBT people have had their personal lives hidden from history. This is a site that celebrates those that have kicked the hinges off the closet door and have contributed to society worldwide. It is important to me that LGBT youth realize that they are not alone, that their lives matter and they can become and do anything their heart’s desire.
It was through my wife that I discovered Writer’s Almanac. I find it inspiring, informative and fun to read. I especially like that it is based on daily occurrences, such as birthdays and events. LGBT Daily Spotlight has been fashioned after it.
The material I’ve gathered is from our personal library. I have also found lists of LGBT politicians, actors, musicians and other occupations that I compiled into one. Our straight allies are also listed. I want to acknowledge: Wikipedia, The Advocate, Huffington Post – Gay Voices and Michelangelo Signorile’s radio program on Sirius XM Progress. My research extended to biographies and newspapers from around the world, both on the internet and in print.
LGBT Daily Spotlight is dedicated to all those that came before us. It is their shoulder’s that we stand on.
