LGBT History Project 2018

LGBT media document, share community's evolution

By Staff, November 2018 Web Exclusive. Courtesy of the LGBT History Project.

Each October, as part of LGBT History Month, journalists, photographers, publishers and media platforms come together to document – and share –  the evolution of the LGBTQ community by aggregating stories from throughout the United States.

This effort is made possible by the efforts of Mark Segal, Kristen Demilio and Jason Villemez of the Philadelphia Gay News.

We hope you enjoy taking a look back at our community through the following headlines:
