Here’s a little history we stumbled upon: lots of folks on Twitter are sharing information about forgotten LGBTQ activists and icons, including the Irish movement “Lesbians & Gays Support the Miners.” In solidarity with the queer activists who supported their rights and needs, the miners led the 1985 Gay Pride strike in London.
