BET is making history of its own this Black History Month.  As part of its “Modern Day Black History Hereos” public service announcements, BET is highlighting openly gay activist Kenyon Farrow, the former director of Queers for Economic Justice.  In the spot, he says, “When I saw the way in which my community was dealing with homophobic violence, with police brutality, with HIV/AIDS, I knew that I had to jump in and fight.”

He adds, “If people see other gay black men like me doing this work,  we can begin to create a movement to change the conditions in our community.”  Watch the PSA below and hear him speak at the Task Force’s Creating Change conference in 2009.
