What was it like to be gay in the 70s & 80s?

As we wind down Pride Month, what better time to take a look back at how far we’ve come as a community?

Such Is Life Videos’ set of news clips about LGBT stories from decades ago is an excellent primer for just how far we’ve come. These two videos, featuring the 70s and 80s, are both long, but make for excellent stop-and-play action in a browser tab for watching during breaks. After all, most segments are only a few minutes long and you won’t miss any plot lines.

Take a look and give thanks for these LGBT pioneers who made queer life possible with their bravery and sacrifices.
