Over the course of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, the visibility of the LGBTQ community in the United States has increased significantly. It has had a lasting and important political, social, and cultural impact on national development and on the development of the Central Upper Peninsula in particular. LGBTQ individuals and organizations now participate in education, religion, politics, and other community activities.
