Before language existed to identify persons whose gender expression and/or sexuality were non-conforming, 19th and early 20th century local newspapers offered tantalizing clues that all was not straight and narrow. A few decades later, the 1930s previewed the openness of recent times before giving way to a darker, more perilous era for LGBTQ+ people in the 1950s. After reviewing these twilight years, this program will look at the beginnings of the current movement toward LGBTQ+ visibility and rights.
