Getting off the ground

Though I am a bit late for honoring Black History Month, this link will take you to a list of black people who were also gay, lesbian, or transgender. There is also a quote with each name. Folklorist Zora Neale Hurston wrote, “Mama exhorted her children at every opportunity to ‘jump at de sun.’ We might not land on the sun, but at least we would get off the ground.”

Various commenters contribute more names to the list.
