Next week’s PGN, along with 28 newspapers across the country, will begin to celebrate October as Gay History Month. This is the largest gay history project of any type, anywhere ever: Our combined print run alone is over 650,000. The 29 newspapers and magazines are in every major city in America and, with our web traffic, the numbers are staggering. Our newspaper has been involved with this project since the beginning and, each year, I sometimes feel that the community doesn’t really care. But all of a sudden this year, there is enthusiasm like I’ve never seen before. And that is borne out with those numbers. And with what the writers discovered. We clearly make the case that historians have hidden – closeted – the LGBT community’s contributions to building and preserving this country.
