23 Stories To Show We Have A Long Way To Go For LGBTQ Equality

| Right | May 22, 2020

Dear readers,

Today is Harvey Milk day! The first openly-gay elected official in the US, Harvey Milk served the people of California and was an important public face for the rights of the LGBTQ community. Sadly, his assassination in 1978 showed that the world still had a long way to go, and still does to this day. As the man was honored with his own day to remember the struggle he fought for, we here at Not Always Right would like to partake.

Please enjoy the following 23 stories from our archives that show both the struggles and joys of the LGBTQ community, who are just trying to go to work and pay their bills like everyone else.
