Did you know that lavender has a fascinating history in the LGBTQ+ community? 🏳️🌈💜 In the 1920s, "lavender boy" was a term used to insult gay men who were perceived as not being masculine enough.
Even Abraham Lincoln was once called "lavender" by a historian. For women, lavender became a symbol of lesbian visibility and inclusivity in the feminist movement. In 1970, activists disrupted a women's event wearing T-shirts that read "Lavender Menace" to protest discrimination against lesbians.
The crowd welcomed them with open arms, and in 1971, lesbian rights became a "legitimate concern of feminism." Let's celebrate the resilience and strength of our community's history with this cool 30cm x 42cm design that will add character to any space!
