Celebrate LGBTQ+ women’s history
New York City is home to generations of LGBTQ+ history, but we are more than our past. Queer and trans history is being made every day, all around us. Throughout The Center’s 40 years of existence, we have seen our community continually develop new ways to fight oppression, love one another, and live in our truths.
There are countless people who guide us on these journeys—many of them women. As we continue through Women’s History Month, we have a special opportunity to recognize how LGBTQ+ women have shaped the course of our history and how they continue to do so today.
Take a moment to learn about a few influential women from New York City’s rich LGBTQ+ past, and join us in celebrating some of the contemporary leaders who honor their legacy.
