A California legal group is warning parents of explicit and objectionable content promoted during October's “LGBT History Month." 

School districts and teachers across the country are expected to promote “LGBT History Month” this October to celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender lifestyles. But the Pacific Justice Institute warns parents that some icons featured each day of the month will alarm many.

Dacus, Brad (PJI)The group notes that among activists and celebrities featured, a gay porn producer and an erotic author are also listed.

Brad Dacus, president of PJI, calls it “deeply disturbing”  that the organizers of LGBT History Month believe children should be celebrating “homoerotic authors and porn producers.”

“This should be a serious wake-up call for anyone who still thinks gay history in schools is a good idea,” he says.

The leading website for “LGBT History Month” features a list that includes various LGBT figures including a drag queen, TV personalities, political figures and activists - one person for each day of October. 

So far in October the list includes a California transgender, Gwen Araujo. Living as a woman, he was killed in 2002 after tricking several men at a party into having sexual relations with him. 

A second celebrated figure is the late Cuban-born poet Reinaldo Arenas. Arenas supported Fidel Castro's overthrow of the government but was later imprisoned for his homosexuality. 

PJI's warning about the 31 "icons" was noted by San Diego newspaper LGBT Weekly, which stated the 31 names were selected from 500 names worldwide. 

PJI notes that years' list includes more individuals from groups that have traditionally opposed alternate lifestyles, including black and Asian LGBT figures.
