Guess the historical figure

Who am I?

As a pioneer for gay rights, I tirelessly worked for equality. I fought to remove homosexuality's classification as a mental illness (and won), edited the US's first national lesbian magazine, and organized New York City's first Pride Parade among other achievements. Many consider me the mother of the LGBT civil rights movement.

James Baldwin was never afraid to touch on the touchiest subjects of race and sexuality. And while he and his writing came of age before the Gay Liberation Movement, he empowered black gay men (specifically) to find a sense of self and was often thought of as somewhat of a father figure to them.
