Sexual minority individuals, including lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, trans-gendered, and queer in Seattle and in the Pacific Northwest share a history that is both rich and vibrant. Living what some historians call the "silenced" or "invisible" Katz minority experience, gay and lesbian histories are scarce, with local histories even more difficult to come by. However difficult, the retelling of even the smallest details captures precious glimpses of early homosexual lives, reminding us that their history does exist, however buried or insufficiently documented. This essay highlights a collection of only a few of these moments, those that have been previously documented in other histories, local news, personal interviews, magazine articles, and photographs.
