Last year, The Q Center and the Gay Lesbian Archives of the Pacific Northwest sponsored Queer Heroes, naming 30 heroes from Portland LGBT community. The inaugural list included such luminaries as Darcelle and Kathleen Saadat. Each day during Pride, the Queer Heroes project will announce one more hero. Their name and picture will also be displayed at the Q Center and the special Queer Hero exhibit at Pride. And, throughout the year, the Queer Hero exhibit tours the community.
So, who deserves to be honored as a Queer Hero in 2013? Share your thoughts and ideas with The Q Center and GLAPN at the Queer Heroes website. Nominations are due by March 15th!
