Urban One and Nissan Celebrates LGBTQ History Month!
LGBTQ History Month is celebrated in October to coincide with National Coming Out Day on October 11th and to commemorate the 1979 and 1987 Marches on Washington for LGBT Rights. It also has a focus on African American LGBTQ individuals that have made major impacts on our nation and in our lives. Far too often the contributions of African American Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, and Queer people go unrecognized or are omitted from history.
Urban One proudly partners with Nissan, and your local Nissan dealers to honor and recognize some of the many African American LGBTQ history makers that have gone UNSUNG!
We are featuring African American LGBTQ History Makers in the fields of: Arts and Entertainment, News Media, Politics/Advocates, Local Notables
