Video of the Day: Lesbian Mini-History Celebrates Sally Ride

“Sally is, as far as we know, the first LGBT person in space. She’s the first gay in space! Unless someone else was secretly in the closet.”

YouTuber Kat Louise has a regular series called Lesbian Mini-History in which she dedicates whole videos to the condensed history of an individual or group that has been important to lesbian herstory and culture. This week, she’s sharing tidbits on late astronaut Sally Ride, who would have celebrated her 66th birthday this Friday.
