Equality Forum Seeks Nominations for 2014 LGBT History Month Icons

lgbt history month icons

LGBT History Month wrapped up yesterday, which means Equality Forum is already in the beginning stages of choosing next year’s History Month Icons. Here’s what they’re looking for:

“The 31 LGBT Icons, living or dead, are selected for their achievements in their field of endeavor; for their status as a national hero; or for their significant contribution to LGBT civil rights. Equality Forum solicits nominations from regional, state, national and international organizations, activists and the public.”




So who do you think should make the cut? Jason Collins? Lance Bass? Mary Lambert? Michael Musto? Portia De Rossi? Michael Lucas? Mondo Guerra? Lady Bunny? The list could go on. Let's just make sure they don't make another Queen Latifah hiccup next year. To cast your official vote, go here.

The icons will be announced on May 3, 2014 at the International Equality Dinner, and will be revealed the week of May 5 on the LGBT History Month website.
