It has just been in the last few years that we've finally seen the plethora of research and historical information related to the lived lives of LGBT persons. This journey is important to document, so that we may see where we've been and how to move forward.

The goal of this portion of our Knowledge Community (KC) is to collect as much of that history from as many resources as possible.  To contribute information from your state or area, please email us at

PLEASE REMEMBER:  If you are submitting items to be included in the KC, ensure links work, images documents are correctly attributed and all permissions have been granted.
