We don't know enough about our history as LGBT people. In a lot of ways that's because we have been straight-washed out history books, schools and libraries. But, we have also not done enough to seek out, collect and share stories of the LGBT past.
I came across this clip from The Other Side: A Queer History at the Band of Thebes website. The stories told by the men in documentary are amazing tells of gay life in Los Angeles in the 50s, 60s and 70s.
