Pride Month: 1800 to the present [timeline]

OUP Philosophy is celebrating Pride Month to mark the 50th anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexuality, and to coincide with NYC Pride and London Pride in June and July. Throughout history those in the LGBTQ community have faced discrimination and injustice for their sexuality, and have struggled to fight for equal rights. In this timeline, we have created an overview of how attitudes and behaviors have changed over time, and highlighted important milestones in the UK and US along the way.
