Many locate the start of LGBTQ movements for equal rights in the U.S. at the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in NYC, but the struggle for LGBTQ equality goes back much further, and includes the 1966 Compton's Cafeteria riot. This board surveys coalitions and social movements from around the world, composed of people advancing the rights of those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, asexual, intersex, or queer. Check out our "Sexuality" boards to find more images related to LGBTQ issues.
