Our Gay History in 50 States, written by Zalore Stout, tells the story of queer American history state by state. The stories that make up this book celebrate significant people, places and events, and highlight struggles, successes and contributions of the LGBTQIA+ community, creating a history to be passed on to future generations. The state by state format illustrates that LGBT history happens in every state, everywhere LGBT people live so that readers learn that LGBTQ+ history is American history.
