LGBT historian Kevin Jennings will take you through 500 years of LGBT history on the North American continent, beginning with the Two-Spirit tradition of indigenous people and ending with the advent of marriage equality. Join us as Kevin (a member of the committee that created LGBT History Month in 1994) takes us on a fascinating journey that explodes forever the idea that “gay history started at the Stonewall in 1969.”
