I'm working on a side project for the blog - a piece on the 50 LGBT people who have contributed the most to society. We know that our community has done a lot to help shape the world - usually while having our sexuality not-so-subtly removed from the history books. I'm working on a multi-part post to feature some of the big names from history that might just shock some of the straight folks who visit the site.
So help me out - who do you think should be on the list? Of course, you don't have to leave 50 names but if everyone throws a few out there, I should have plenty queers to choose from! How about just giving me your top 3 or 5 or so?
