Oh, pioneers! 

Ted Holder and Jennifer Chilcoat were long in the fight for LGBT rights in Arkansas

To celebrate the arrival of marriage equality to Arkansas and the 2015 Little Rock Pride Parade and Festival on Oct. 11, Arkansas Times will publish in the remaining months of 2015 a series of profiles of some of the state's LGBT pioneers. What follows is the first in that series, featuring Ted Holder and Jennifer Chilcoat.

While we won't be able to talk with all of the brave people who helped, and are still helping, to make LGBT rights a reality in the state, our hope is that these profiles will honor all who stood up for equality in the days when that was a much riskier proposition. If you know someone you think we should profile, please drop us a line at lindseymillar@arktimes.com or at the Arkansas Times Facebook page.

If you like this reporting, please go to arktimes.com/outinark and consider making a tax-deductible donation to help us start Out in Arkansas, a daily online publication we hope will be a primary and opinionated news source on all things LGBT in the state.
