Thanks Billy Barty

Dwarfism Awareness Month, Day 9: giving credit to the man himself. Dwarfism Awareness Month became the month of October because the founder of the LPA (Little People of America), Billy Barty, had his birthday in October. LPA first launched Dwarfism Awareness Month in 2009. Members of the dwarfism community have used this time as an opportunity to send the message that people with short stature/dwarfism are equal participants in all areas of society. #Dwarfism #DwarfismAwarene
