October is LGBT History Month. The month of observance was first organized in 1994 by high school teacher Rodney Wilson to coincide with National Coming Out Day (Oct. 11) and was meant to highlight the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights movement.
In 2006, the Equality Forum began promoting the annual commemoration by featuring a different LGBT icon each day.
“This is the 7th anniversary of LGBT History Month. There are a total of 217 Icons that inspire pride in our heroes and our impressive national and international accomplishments,” said Malcolm Lazin, Equality Forum executive director, in a statement.
Tyra Sanchez of Atlanta, winner of "RuPaul's Drag Race" season two, is hoping you'll remember her name for reasons beyond her reality TV triumph. She's teamed up with gay filmmaker Björn Flóki to make a documentary called "Drag Dad" about balancing life as a drag superstar on stage and a single parent off.
During the "Drag Race" season that ran February through April 2010, rumors of Sanchez's life before the show littered the internet, some of which were true: James Ross, his real name, was homeless at 17. During the first week of his senior year of high school, when he "wasn't gay," he had a son, Jeremiah, with his best friend.The couple mutually agreed Ross would take custody.
