2015 was a year of unprecedented LGBT advances — the Supreme Court decision for marriage equality, for one — along with tragedies, such as a surge in murders of transgender women, and LGBT people being touched by the gun violence plaguing America. Among the year's other events: A famous former Olympic athlete came out as transgender, the movement against conversion therapy intensified, one major political party courted us more than ever, and the other demonized us more than ever.

But in good news and bad, we had an unheard-of level of visibility. Click through to see some of the key events of 2015.
