The movement for LGBTQ+ rights in the US officially began all the way back in the 1920s. That's when Henry Gerber founded the Society for Human Rights, described as "the first documented gay rights organization" in the country. The society only lasted one year, however, due to police raids on the organization. The movement didn't pick up full steam again until several decades later, after the Stonewall Riots in New York City in 1969 galvanized activists to form the Gay Liberation Front. Even before the 1920s, some members of the LGBTQ+ community were not afraid to show their love as couples in photographs. In the 1960s and 1970s, however, as pride marches, parades, and protests erupted around the country, and in other parts of the world, a real photo history began to emerge. Images from the early gay rights movement are a reminder of how far we have come — and how far we still have to go — in recognizing the concerns of LGBTQ+ people.
