  1. Do you hear the people sing?
    Singing the song of angry men,
    It is the music of a people who will not be slaves again!

    When the beating of your heart
    Echoes the beating of the drum
    There's a life about to start when tomorrow comes!

    -Les Miserables

  2. This is a video about rarely known lgbt+ history in the Usa (and it should probably mention that it’s focusing on American history). I know ppl in the comments are upset at how US-centric this is but I think the issue isn’t this video, but that there should be more education about the global struggle of the Lgbtq community

  3. why do these lgbt+ history videos never include transmen? i'm so sick and tired of not finding anything related to the history of transmen on youtube or anywhere… no shade to my sisters but goddamnit it feels like we're being erased from the queer historybooks…

  4. I love his acting and I usually watch anything he's acting in, which is why I'm so upset that I can't watch Pose because it isn't on TV in the country I'm in and I can no longer use Kodi. 😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢

  5. So every important social and interlectual movement starts in America does it? Talk about self obsessed Yanks. Read about the German sexologist and gay rights campaigner Magnus Hirschfeld – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnus_Hirschfeld is a good introduction. What this gay doctor tried to do was change attitudes and repressive laws. Then of course Hitler's reactionary thugs took over and Magnus's world class clinic, research centre and sex museum was trashed. That happened long before Stone Wall and all the US based atavist movements mentioned in this clip.

  6. "Gay" organizations and history not "Queer." That word is disrespectful to elder gays and lesbians.. the people this video is about.
