I’m just gonna cut to the chase here, y’all: My all-time favorite thing to do is browse through Wikipedia pages about celebrities and pop culture icons. I love getting lost in a hole of ridiculously cool information.
And because it’s Pride month, I’d love to know from you, dear reader, the most interesting Wikipedia page about an LGBTQ figure in queer history.
Maybe you’ve spent hours reading through Marsha P. Johnson‘s Wikipedia page, and you think it’s important for people to recognize the huge role Johnson played during the Stonewall riots in 1969.
Or perhaps you love bisexual icon Colette‘s Wikipedia page and are blown away by the fact that she shared an onstage kiss with a woman in 1907 (!!!), causing a riot.
Or maybe you think Audre Lorde‘s Wikipedia page is interesting as heck, mainly because of the super long list of books, poems, and essays she contributed to the world as a black lesbian.
These figures are important, and it’s time to give them some shine! 🏳️🌈 Tell us the most interesting Wikipedia page about a historical queer figure, and why it’s your favorite.
