Our Queer History

A TIMELINE

In 2021, we created a history installation for our annual festival to show others just how much queer history is right here in northwest Louisiana. We've found that many people, especially young people, have no idea what has been cultivated right in our own backyard. This timeline includes a variety of information spanning from the 1940s to today. We've also included a few deaths that have impacted our community, especially our trans community. Please know we have worked diligently to report the most accurate facts about OUR QUEER HISTORY and invite others to share their photos and stories by emailing us at queerport@gmail.com.
