As for anti-LGBT history, it remains unclear whether those artifacts will find housing in the Museum of Human-Perpetuated Cruelty, the Archives of Wasting Time in The Face of Actual Social Issues That You Could Have Solved, or the Annals of American Injustice. Or perhaps we will have to build a whole new memorial to house an inequity as great as the one our opposition waged against out lives, souls, and psyches.
