Learning Our History

Who says the future looks bleak for the LGBT community? My faith in the young people of our community is being affirmed more and more everyday. The teenagers in this video took the time to sit down with some more mature individuals from our community to learn their stories.

I think this video is sooo powerful. I love the fact that two different generations have come together to create such a beautiful and educational narrative about LGBT life. One of teens in this video said it perfectly. "There is no class on gay life so if you want to learn anything you have to go to the source."

Because the LGBT community was invisible for so long, now that there has been an emergence of gay culture, we do now need to document our history. We need to learn what it was like for our community members back when it was unlawful, immoral and even psychologically inappropriate to be same gender loving.

Great job to all involved in this project. Please continue to keep up the good work. More stuff like this is needed for the community.
