Unfortunately, due to many laws in the US, education about these people are often prohibited in public schools, so many of us may not have learned any of it!

As we recognize this long and controversial history, we would be remiss not to mention these important and famous people of the community throughout time.

There's a movie on Hulu called Happiest Season that was really great. It's about a woman going to meet her partner's family over Christmas, only the partner hasn't come out to her family yet and asks her to pretend they're just roommates. It stars Kristen Stewart and Daniel Levy. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8522006/ Christmas in June, perhaps?
