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 was held December 22, 2004

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."
