75-year-old Jean Wimberly could very well be considered a living icon in the LGBTQ movement. When she moved from Philadelphia to New York in the early 1970's, she joined women's support groups and become a social activist for black lesbians. She later founded Circle of Voices, Inc. based in Brooklyn and remains involved in LGBTQ advocate today.
