BLACK QUEER HISTORY NOW!
We cannot express how proud we are of our very own Armonté Butler. His work with young people living with HIV, youth organizers and other Black and Latinx storytellers continues to us leave in complete awe.
Armonté Butler is a writer and activist based in Washington, D.C. He is passionate about adolescent sexual health and supports LGBTQ youth of color and youth people living with HIV to strengthen their organizing and minimizing skills. In addition, he serves as the Program Coordinator of the Gran Varones Fellowship. Because of this and more, he is listed as one of this year’s Honor 41.
ABOUT HONOR 41
In 1901, 41 men were arrested, beaten and eventually disappeared for being gay/bi. Their names were put on a list that condemned them and their families to a life of ridicule, shame and pain.
The 41 List highlights 41 role models in the Latina/o/x LGBTQ community who demonstrate that we can be successful and live our lives “out” and open. Those featured also represent a small sample of the diverse professional backgrounds, generations, genders, geographic regions, and Latino backgrounds that make up our community.
