Andresflava celebrates Black Gay History Month

Yes today starts Black History month but I want to take the time to celebrate the Black Gays who have shaped this country in so many ways and i will be profiling several through out this month as we take a moment to celebrate our history. So today we look at Bayard Rustin.

Black History Fact: Openly Gay Black Activist Bayard Rustin brought MLK JR to Gandhi's non-violence resistance philosophy and was the visionary and orchestrator of the March on Washington, he also was key to form ties with white Jews to fund the movement so when people were arrested, he could quickly bail them out and continue the movement.
