October is Gay History Month

I just saw on a gay news site the October is LGBT History Month. Don’t know how I missed that. Fortunately there is still time to visit the LGBT Month Website and learn something.
LGBT History Month celebrates the achievements of lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender Icons.

Another option is to check out my brief profiles of important gay Jewish men throughout history. See here:

This past year I have been reading a lot about gay history. I have a stack of books that I bought at a used bookstore that I am working my way through.
The Gay Metropolis by Charles Kaiser
Stonewall by Martin Duberman
About Time, Exploring the Gay Past by Martin Duberman
Midlife Queer, Autobiography of a Decade 1971-81 by Martin Duberman
Queers in History by Keith Stern
Still on my bookshelf that I have yet to read:
Who’s Who in Gay & Lesbian History, & Who’s Who in Contemporary Gay & Lesbian History edited by Robert Aldrich and Garry Wotherspoon
Out in the Castro edited by Winston Leyland
Lost Prophet, The Life and Times of Bayard Rustin by John D’Emilio
