Organ Pipe National Park Recognizes LGBTQ+ community

from Organ Pipe National Park

This month we recognize the struggles that the LGBTQ+ community has endured and celebrate the incredible contributions this community has made to the nation’s history.️‍For many years, the rich histories of LGBTQ+ Americans have been erased through punishing laws and discrimination. ️‍Yet because of courageous and collaborative efforts of many LGBTQ+ groups working to preserve their history, you can now visit and learn about the queer histories, people, and places woven into the American story… from the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument in Montana to Stonewall in New York City.️‍A good place to start is the NPS website at https://www.nps.gov/…/tellingallameri…/lgbtqheritage.htm ️‍or the Historypin Project https://www.historypin.org/…/-55.430296,-160…/paging/1 Wishing you all a happy Pride month!#Pride2021 #happypride #pride NPS Graphic/KCeballos66667
