Since the 1970s, the Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender (GLBT) movement in Minnesota has worked to create mental health, social service, religious, and political institutions that work with GLBT individuals and voice their concerns to the public. GLBT activists demanded reforms in the way that Minnesota press covers GLBT stories. Activists also publicly confronted the hate crimes that terrorized their communities in the 1980s, leading to the passage of a hate crimes penalty bill in 1989. Due to the GLBT movement, GLBT individuals, culture, and issues, have become increasingly visible and accepted in Minnesota.
