StoneWall Society Network founder Len Rogers announced the official opening of the GLBT  Hall Of Fame. The Hall for this time will be located at www.glbthalloffame.com. Future goals include a permanent physical location for the GLBT  Hall Of Fame and or a traveling exhibit. The stated mission: "To create and maintain a perpetual source and location dedicated to accessibly recognize and honor members and friends of the GLBT  community who have made outstanding and positive impact. Not only and necessarily in the GLBT  community but in the world community of all. Our goal is to represent all areas of community, local and international in the areas of; art, music, education, leadership, theatre, science, sports, literature, activism, community, 

philanthropy, equality, and community support."
According to GLBT  Hall Of Fame and StoneWall Society Network founder, Len Rogers, "The 2004 U.S. election outcome and  worldwide pressure by various religious groups to undermine GLBT Equality has created a feeling of despair and depression within the GLBT community. We hope the GLBT  Hall Of Fame can act as a means to instill pride and conviction. The concept is a personal long time dream, and I can think of no better time to realize this for community and those recognized. Seeing our heroes, getting to know them, I hope will bring a sense of pride and action to an emotionally damaged GLBT community."
The GLBT  Hall Of Fame is a community based program designed to recognize and honor members and friends of the GLBT  community who through direct effort and action have made an outstanding impact on the GLBT  community and/or the worldwide community. It is our belief that pride starts with knowledge. Therefore we hope to strengthen the GLBT  community sense of pride while paying respect to and acknowledging the GLBT  history and worldwide contributions. The concept originated from countless inquiries at StoneWall Society www.stonewallsociety.com on subject matters of GLBT  history and community members.
The first Induction of Members will be held December 22, 2004 and presented live on Rainbow World Radio. At present there are fifty-four Standing Inductees for the December induction and fifty-eight Nominees for membership. Contact and notification to available Standing Inductees and Nominees is ongoing and should be completed by mid December. Complete nomination criteria and induction information is available at the website: www.glbthalloffame.com.
