      Very nice. A little light on the early years, but media wasn’t 24/7 then so that is understandable. Good job.

      Pretty, but missing a lot of people who set the groundwork for where we are today including, but not limited to:

      Frank Kameny;
      Barbara Gittings;
      Del Lyons and Phyllis Martin;
      Craig Rodwell;
      Mark Snyder;
      Leonard Matlovich; and
      Vernon “Copy” Berg, III.

      Take the time to “google” them.

      Is that Frank Kameny with the ‘Gay is Good’ sign?

      Barbara Gittings certainly should be in there and also Kiyoshi Kuromiya (from CA, but
      became a legend in Philadelphia).
