The Gay Rights Movement

Through many years, people had to live a secret life, afraid to be open with who they love. They would be fired from their jobs, lose their families and friends, and sometimes be arrested for being a little different. But that did not stop us! We protested, we found safe places and in 2015, two years ago, The Supreme Court recognized all of our hard work when the marriage between a same-sex couple became legalized. People like those who rioted at Stonewall Inn and others who fought for our rights like Harvey Milk and more modern activists like RuPaul and Meghan McCain.

CNN put together a highlight real of the gay rights movement showcasing the efforts of our brothers and sister. It’s quite extraordinary to watch. Who are some of your gay right activist heroes? What struggles have you gone through? Feel free to share with us. And always remember that LOVE IS LOVE!
