LGBT Pop Culture

Since were not usually (at this general age group) congregated into humongous identifiable clumps, sometimes it doesn't really seem like there are things we all get, which semms unfair, since everyone else gets their pop culture. So, if you had to make a list of things that should be things every LGBT teen/college-age person should know (like books, movies, people, phrases) that would make up LGBT t/c-a p culture, what would they be?
