LGBT Pioneers

We at Lambda Peer Support Services would like to showcase some important LGBT people who have made an indelible impact in the fields of literature, politics, science, and social activism. Please join us in celebrating those who made their voices heard and helped to create a more safe and inclusive world for the rest of us to live out and proud!
