LGBT "Activists", from Matt & Andrej Biographies.

Matt & Andrej Kowalsky "Biographies of Famous GLTB People (Or who tried it at least once...)" lists an extensive collection of short biographies, with an indication in the headline for each entry if the country of origin, dates and main occupation or claim to queer fame. The list below is a selection from the full listing of those who are described as "activists" or social reformers,  who are no longer alive.

For a companion listing of those who are listed as "living" (at least at the time of posting), see the entry at "Ir's a Queer World").
