Gay history is all around us. You just have to know where to look. The LGBTQ community has faced its fair share of struggles throughout history. From the infamous Stonewall incident of 1969 to the ongoing persecution of gay men and women around the world, there are so many aspects of our history that often go unnoticed. As we try to forge a brighter future for everyone in the LGBTQ community, we can learn from the events of our past. LGBTQ history is about more than just overcoming adversity; it’s about cherishing and remembering all of the ways the LGBTQ community has influenced society as a whole over the years. We are proud to pay tribute to the LGBTQ movers and shakers who have turned pop culture and gay history on its head. From centuries past to the latest in today's headlines, celebrate gay history with a nod to those that dare to dream.
