When is LGBT+ History Month?
October. October was selected to coincide with National Coming Out Day (Oct. 11), which was already established, and the anniversary of the first march on Washington for gay and le***an rights in 1979.

The month now also includes Spirit Day on Oct. 20, on which people around the country wear purple in support of LGBTQIA+ youth; Ally Week, a week in which advocates against LGBTQIA+ bullying are celebrated; and the anniversary of 21-year-old Matthew Shepard’s murder on Oct. 12, 1998, which led to the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act in 2009. #happylgbthistorymonth

“Pa’lante y Viva La Revolución”
Today we celebrate El Grito De Lares - La revolución Puertorriqueña.
BORICUAS frustrated by the lack of political and economic freedom, and enraged by the continuing repression on the island, Puerto Rico's pro-independence movement staged an armed rebellion in 1868. Known as the Grito de Lares (the "Cry of Lares"), the rebellion broke out on September 23, 1868. It was planned by a group led by #DrRamónEmeterioBetances and #SegundoRuizBelvis, who on January 6, 1868, founded the Comité Revolucionario de Puerto Rico (Revolutionary Committee of Puerto Rico) from their exile in the Dominican Republic.

Betances authored several proclamas, or statements, attacking the exploitation of the Puerto Ricans by the Spanish colonial system and called for immediate insurrection. The proclamas soon circulated throughout the island as local dissident groups began organizing. Secret cells of the Revolutionary Committee were established involving members from all sectors of society, including landowners, merchants, professionals, peasants, and slaves.

Dolores “Lolita” Lebrón Sotomayor was one of five siblings born in Lares, Puerto Rico.

A leader of a Puerto Rican nationalist group

"My life I give for the freedom of my country," She then unfurled her one-starred red, white and blue flag and screamed, "Viva Puerto Rico libre!" in protest of her nation's designation as a U.S. commonwealth” - #LolitaLebrón

Sean Monterrosa was on his knees outside a Walgreens when a Vallejo Police Officer fired at him 5 times through his vehicle's windshield. One of those shots hit and killed the 22-year-old, who police say they believed was armed. He wasn’t. ⁣

The officer who fired the fatal shot has been placed on routine paid administrative leave as have the witness officers. His name has not been released.⁣

ACTION YOU CAN TAKE TODAY: Send an email to the DA. Link in my bio with language from the organizers. ⁣

We want and demand: Chief Shawny Williams release the footage of the officers’ body cameras,⁣

Have an outside independent commission be formed for the investigation of the slaying of Sean Monterrosa. ⁣

The officers disciplinary records be released and made public.⁣
