The video, featuring activists, is a call to action for the community to document, preserve, and share the history and ongoing story of the LGBTQ+ movement.

Chronicle, the new collaborative visual storytelling platform, has launched a video for LGBT History Month showing the story of the LGBTQ+ movement through photos contributed by the community.

The video is part of an effort to raise awareness of the LGBTQ+ chronicle (currently 1938 -- present), a crowdsourced, ongoing visual record of the subject.

The video (which can be seen at tinyurl.com/lgbtqhistoryvideo), features leading organizations and activists such as Equality Forum, the coordinators of LGBT History Month; Gwendolyn Ann Smith, founder of Trans Day of Remembrance; and YouTube influencers Mekkk and AreTheyGay.

"Now more than ever, it is important to preserve and share LGBTQ+ history," said Steven McBride, Chronicle Founder/CEO. "We need to know and understand the past and present in order to create a better future, together."

Members of the LGBTQ+ community are invited to engage with the video as well as add their noteworthy photos with descriptions to the LGBTQ+ chronicle to be part of the visual history effort.

Chronicle is a free, mobile-first visual storytelling platform and community that empowers users with shared experiences, passions, and causes to record their stories, together.
