20 OUTstanding Virginians

Last Saturday night, Equality Virginia honored 20 OUTstanding Virginians ... GLBT people, living and dead, who have excelled in their fields and forged new paths for others to walk.

Get to know these people, learn about their accomplishments, honor their achievements, and understand why each of us is diminished when any of us is held back, considered "less than," deprived of full equality, or refused their very humanity.

Watch and learn.

Commit to "be the change you want to see in the world." Mahatma Ghandi

Commit to being part of making Virginia a place where, without exception, every gay, lesbian, transgender and bi-sexual person can live a life free of violence and discrimination, a life of equal possibilities and a life of dignity and respect.
