Black History Month

Let's get some LGBTQAIP+ black representation going.

Black LBGTQ History Icons

All information courtesy of Tumblr blog LGBTQ+ History. Featuring facts like:

  • A black trans woman started the Stonewall Riots.
  • A black lesbian threw the first punch at the Stonewall Riots.
  • A black gay man was the leading strategist behind the Civil Rights Movement.
  • A black gay man popularized modern dance.

And their names were/are Marsha P. Johnson, Stormé DeLarverie, Bayard Rustin, and Alvin Ailey, respectively. And there's more. Go look.
