A quiet campaign is placing gay people and their rights struggle in U.S. history

A quiet campaign is placing gay people and their rights struggle in U.S. history | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it

For decades, visitors to Independence Hall in Philadelphia were told one main story: This was where the country’s Founding Fathers enshrined Americans’ inalienable rights in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. But now, an additional human rights story is being told at the symbolic birthplace of the United States: that of Reminder Days, one of the earliest public protests against LGBT discrimination.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

Tour guides talk about the primly dressed demonstrators who marched past the Liberty Bell on July 4 for five years in the 1960s, reminding the public that gay people lacked basic rights. In the visitors’ center, there are lectures and a slide show about the protests. And a state-installed marker outside the hall notes that the demonstrations helped transform a local campaign into a new civil rights movement.
