Lee and I spoke of Queer History and his books sharing the history of some very famous people who were gay. Lee has an amazing site full of books and resources that he never had growing up.
Lee Wind’s superpower is stories – true and fictional – that center marginalized kids and teens and celebrate their power to change the world. Closeted until his 20s, Lee writes the books that would have changed his life as a young Gay kid. His latest book is the nonfiction “No Way, They Were Gay? Hidden Lives and Secret Loves” for readers age 11 and up, honored as a Junior Library Guild Gold Standard selection. Lee's award-winning blog, I'm Here. I'm Queer. What the Hell Do I Read? highlights books, culture, and politics for LGBTQ youth and their allies.

October is LGBT History Month
About LGBT History Month
How It Works
Each year LGBT History Month celebrates the achievements of 31 lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender Icons. Each day in October, a new LGBT Icon is featured with a video, bio, bibliography, downloadable images, and other resources.
LGBT History Is History
“LGBT History Month sends an important message to our nation’s teachers, school boards, community leaders, and youth about the vital importance of recognizing and exploring the role of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people in American history."
In 1994, Rodney Wilson, a Missouri high school teacher, believed a month should be dedicated to the celebration and teaching of gay and lesbian history, and gathered other teachers and community leaders. They selected October because public schools are in session and existing traditions, such as Coming Out Day (October 11), occur that month.
Celebrate Our Heritage
The LGBT community is the only community worldwide that is not taught its history at home, in public schools, or in religious institutions. LGBT History Month provides role models, builds community, and makes the civil rights statement about our extraordinary national and international contributions.
