Steve Sprinkle has been honored by the website Queerty as one of six LGBT seniors you should know.
He is the author of Unfinished Lives, a book that tells the stories of hate crime victims. He was the victim of gay-related hate crime himself.
“Today is the last day of LGBT History Month, but instead of pulling out some factoid from the past, we decided to honor some older LGBT activists who not only witnessed gay history — they continue to help make it. Even as a new generation of LGBTs gets its feet wet in the activist waters, it’s important we celebrate those vital individuals who have been breaking down barriers for decades.”
The others listed in the “6 LGBT Seniors You Should Know” are Don Kilhefner, West Hollywood; Vernita Gray, Chicago; Jay Kallio, New York City; and Shelly Bailes and Ellen Pontac, Davis, Calif.
