Tourism Diversity Matters (TDM) is proud to celebrate LGBT History Month. LGBT History Month celebrates the achievements of 31 lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender Icons. LGBT History Month began in 1994, when Rodney Wilson, a Missouri high school teacher, believed a month should be dedicated to the celebration and teaching of gay and lesbian history. He gathered other teachers and community leaders, and They selected October because public schools are in session and existing traditions, such as Coming Out Day (October 11), occur that month.
Each day throughout October, Equality Forum, a national and international LGBT civil rights organization with an educational focus, will feature a new LGBT Icon video, bio, bibliography, downloadable image, and other resources.
TDM has and will continue to support the LGBTQ community 365 days of the year. To demonstrate our support, TDM revamped our logo to display the symbolic colors of the LGBTQ community throughout Pride Month on all of our platforms.
