Black History Month2

 

Each year, for almost 100 years, Americans have set aside time in February to acknowledge the many and varied accomplishments of African-American citizens. Far too often the contributions of black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender people are not equally celebrated.

Equality Virginia is excited to share events from groups across the Commonwealth that seek to honor Virginia’s vibrant LGBT community members of color.

We hope you can make it to an event listed below. If you know of a Black History Month event that should be listed, please email the details to info@equalityvirginia.org and we will be sure to add it.
