GLBT History Month Is Here!

October is GLBT History Month/Herstory Month!

Celebrate bare and with pride!

October is the month set aside to remember GLBT history here in the USA. Since 2009, it has been celebrated with a Presidential Proclamation, thank to President Barack Obama. Previous presidents avoided anything in the least way connected to our community. 

On the upper-right hand corner of your screen, the above icon appears here at Guys Without Boxers: Bare With Pride during the entire month. Click on the icon daily to learn about this year's honored individuals from both our past and present. A different person is featured for each day of the month. Visit the site to also see who's been selected in previous years. 

Throughout this month, every Friday posting will feature a selection of vintage photographs depicting bare same gender loving men from our past. On Guys Without Boxers: Bare With Pride, October is GLBT Bare History Month. Until there is a naturist/nudist month, the two will be combined on this site. 

Below is a listing of this year's honorees on the GLBT History Month website. Biographies are featured on the website. The individuals are listed numerically by the day of this month they are celebrated. Use the list to see who you want to check out or bookmark the icon and read on a daily basis. Either way, celebrate our history month!
