PROFILE: The First Queer Astronaut

Sally Ride

For eons, humanity has looked towards the stars and yearned to reach them – to explore distant moons and planets, and touch the very edges of the universe.

In the last 50 years, we have made incredible progress, setting foot on the moon, landing robots on Mars and even beaming pictures back from as far away as Pluto. An important part of that journey was Sally Ride, the first known LGBT astronaut.

More than 330 American astronauts have made it to space, but Ride was the first American woman – and LGBT person – to go into space, taking the journey into the giant expanse in 1983.
