A moving geographic essay about the local LGBTQ history over at CurbedLA, by Bianca Barragan. Delve in and watch the LA map come alive with site-specific stories of Angelenos, told through the buildings and places that played important roles in the 20th century LGBTQ rights movement.  Some structures no longer exist, yet some remain, like the home of the Tom of Finland Foundation, a 1921 Craftsman in Echo Park that received the LA Historic-Cultural Monument status just last year.  If you are keen on learning more, we recommend a visit to the fantastic collection (also included on the CurbedLA map) of the One Archives Gallery & Museum, permanently hosted at the USC Library in West Adams.
