Overview

Rodney Wilson is an author, teacher, and founder of LGBT history month. Growing up in a small town in Missouri, the message he and others heard was that gays and lesbians were “damaged goods” and so dangerous that they should not be allowed in the classroom. But Rodney’s thirst for knowledge and calling was louder leading him to obtain multiple degrees in education and becoming a teacher. Then a few years later on a continuing education trip to Washington DC he came across some history that changed his life. This led to him coming out to his students during a history lesson that forever changed the world.
