Archive Collects KC’s Gay And Lesbian History: The director of the Gay and Lesbian Archives of Mid-America discusses Kansas City’s first gay pride group and how vital LGBT history is for youth:

You haven’t always had a president who will support same-sex marriage. It’s been a real struggle to get to this point. And kids today – young people today – don’t know that. And without this kind of documentation and without these kinds of stories, they will lose that.” [KCUR]
