In school, they continue to teach history as a way to examine the past and how it has shaped relationships between societies and people. But how much queer history was covered in these lessons? Today, we’re going back in time — again — to explore the rich history of queer people throughout time in the US. This is the first chapter of our six part series on our nation’s queer history.
