Pride month always makes me think about our history; who came before us? These days I had been thinking about what did it look like to be in love as queer people 30 years ago? Or 75 years ago? Or 150 years ago? I turned to the Lesbian Herstory Archives, the New York Public Library, and a few other collections to find out.
For more cool historical images, documents, and archives of the women in our community, definitely check out the Lesbian History Archives in Brooklyn, N.Y., which was a huge help for this project (their Instagram is especially fun).
