Throughout its history, Virginia's Hampton Roads region has been a haven for a diverse and migratory population, including individuals who have long embraced same-sex love and fluid gender identities. By the mid-1900s, this region became a leader in developing institutions and infrastructure for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. Chronicled by Our Own Press, this period saw a surge of creativity and activism that put Hampton Roads on the national map. However, the late 1980s and 1990s brought challenges with military crackdowns and the HIV/AIDS epidemic, resulting in a devastating blow to the local LGBT community's leadership. It wasn't until the 21st century that a resurgence of networking and engagement helped bring the annual Pride Festival to the forefront at Town Point Park in Norfolk.
