HRC Marks the End of Black History Month

by Hayley Miller February 29, 2016


Black History Month might come to a close today, but our work for Black and African American Communities is far from over.

While we have celebrated legendary members of the LGBT and allied community who've helped push our movement forward, we also recognized the programs and movements that are empowering Black and African American LGBT and allied communities nationwide.

From addressing the violence facing Black transgender women, educating on the realities of HIV prevention, treatment and care, advocating for non-discrimination policies and supporting LGBTQ youth, there is more work all of us can do to lift up the more than 1 million LGBTQ African Americans in the United States.

HRC is committed to promoting racial diversity within the LGBT movement and to fighting bias and discrimination in all forms, including many of the unique challenges facing LGBT people of color. To learn about the experiences of LGBTQ people living in the United States who identify as African American, click here.
