Yesterday, the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association announced this year's inductees to its LGBT Journalists Hall of Fame. Each year, the organization honors several journalists and activists who have devoted their lives to advancing the LGBT community through media.
This year's honorees are William Dorr Lambert Legg, Don Michaels, and Michelangelo Signorile.
Legg, who died in 1994, is famous for founding Knights of the Clock, which provided support for interracial LGBT couples, and for suing the U.S. Post Office to ensure that gay-themed publications were allowed to be delivered through the mail system. Michaels is known for volunteering as the president of the Mattachine Society during the 1970s and later working at The Washington Blade. Signorile, of course, is the host of a talk show on Sirius Satellite Radio, an author, and contributor to The Advocate.
