The Northport Historical Society and Museum created a new exhibit celebrating the contributions of the LGBTQ community.
Greg Fox is one person being recognized for his work celebrating the LGBTQ community.
He has been creating fictional stories set in Northport for two decades called "Kyle's Bed and Breakfast."
Fox says it's about a gay bed and breakfast owner and is syndicated to publications across the country.
"All these years I never really had much interest from the town in the actual comic strip itself, but now that the Pride Fest has happened here, it kind of really fits in with what's going on in the town now," Fox says.
His comic strip is on display at the first Pride exhibit at the Northport Historical Society and Museum.
The exhibit tells the story of Pride, locally and nationally. It has a wall where people can add their own stories.
"We have these stories that we are going to archive and have something for the future so people can come to next pride and say, 'That's my story,'" says Northport Historical Society Marketing and Membership Coordinator John Daniello.
The exhibit runs through the end of the month.
