There’s no denying that 2015 was a remarkable year for mainstream rights and visibility for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
However, when it comes to reminders of how far we still have to go in fighting for full equality and liberation, few things are as powerful or obvious as the bigotry offered by those who hate, fear or misunderstand queer people.
Throughout the past 12 months, many individuals went the extra mile to show solidarity with and support for the LGBT community. From a little girl bravely waving a rainbow flag in the face of extreme hate to a digital activist whose trolling exposed the lunacy of those who despise queer people, these are just a handful of some of our favorite people who took on anti-LGBT sentiment in 2015. Thank you!
