LOOK: First Gay Days At Disneyland

GayNightatDisneyland[October is LGBT History Month and to celebrate, Queerty’s gaying up each day with our 31 Days of Queerstory.]

With Gay Days at Disneyland Anaheim going on this weekend, let’s take a look back at the genesis of the annual gathering at the widely-acknowledged “happiest place on earth.” In 1978 a small group of gay and lesbian folks visited the park and posed with Mickey at “Gay Night at Disneyland” which would eventually become an annual event drawing thousands of LGBTs to the Southern California destination.
