Opportunity at a Glance: Rodney Wilson was in his 20s when he was nearly fired for coming out to his high school students during a history lesson. The outcry from the community was swift and severe. The scandal became national through media coverage on Dateline NBC, Newsweek, and The Ricki Lake Show. As the dust was settling, Wilson founded the world’s first LGBTQ History Month!
