Paris Hilton may not be down with the struggle, but the homie-loving homos over at Human Rights Campaign certainly are – and they’ve proved it by compiling a list of “diverse group of African American individuals who are leading the charge for [LGBT] Americans”, according to President Joe Solmonese‘s video introduction to their special “Black History” page.

The Human Rights Campaign will honor their achievements and excellence in a special section of the HRC website at As part of the Human Rights Campaign’s celebration of National Black History Month, throughout the month of February HRC will continuously recognize the sacrifices, contributions and successes made by the African-American community for equality.

Sounds fun, no?
