We will be highlighting 5 influential Queer figures during this week of Pride Month. Today we will be talking about Bayard Rustin. Bayard Rustin was a one prominent figure of the Gay Rights and Civil Rights movements. He unfortunately did not get the recognition he deserved for his advocacy as he worked behind the scenes in both movements.
