Bayard Rustin's 100th Birthday

Okay - so I know I'm late with this post but I still feel a need to share this.  March 17 was Bayard Rustin's birthday.  This year (2012) he would have turned 100 years old.  Happy Belated birthday to one of my favorite role models.

I was thrilled to learn that in honor of his 100th birthday, HERO Phoenix donated a picture of Bayard to the One Voice community Center.  The picture will permanently hang to remind people of his legacy in both the LGBT and African-American civil rights struggles.
