Who is your favorite LGBT icon and why?


Jude Nesmith
student | Philadelphia
“Harrison Browne, the first professional team-sport athlete to come out as trans. He won two championships with his teams, retired, and now he’s transitioned and is an advocate for other trans people.”

Alice Waler
student | Norristown
“My first thought is Janelle Monae, because she’s done so much to open up conversations about the LGBT community to people of color and women and so many other intersections.”

Elijah Hardman
artist | Delaware Country
“Karamo Brown, because of all the people he’s helped and the charity work he does.”
