Celebrating LGBT Month

October is LGBT History Month, and since the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning community holds a very special place in our heart (and on Beforeplay.org), we wanted to celebrate its importance and give a formal shout-out to its extraordinary impact on Colorado and the world.

We believe that every sexual orientation and gender identity deserves to be recognized, yet the LGBT community is the only global community that is not typically taught its history at home, in schools or in religious institutions. That’s pretty mind-blowing, especially considering all the national and worldwide contributions that LGBT role models have made over the years. From music to civil rights; movies and theater to literature; and politics to music, LGBT individuals and the community have helped shape our country and our culture. It makes it easy to see why this month is so significant, and why Beforeplay.org is so proud to honor it. Equality for all, people. Together, we can make it happen.
