CHRONICLE, the new collaborative visual storytelling platform, has launched an initiative to crowdsource stories from LGBT individuals and organizations, creating a chronicle to tell the bigger story and visual history of the community. People and organizations add photographs with descriptive details directly to the LGBT chronicle (currently 1948-present) timeline to help build and be part of the story. Current participants include organizations and activists such as GWEN SMITH, founder of National Transgender Day of Remembrance; AYDIAN DOWLING, the first trans man on the cover of Men’s Health; and young YouTube influencer ARE THEY GAY. The chronicle can be accessed at onechronicle.com/chronicles/lgbtq.
