Finding a Voice [Exhibit Panel]

Transcription

The Stonewall Riots mobilized the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Community to organize on a national level and plan the first massive demonstration for Gay and Lesbian rights.

On October 14, 1979, an estimated 50,000 to 100,000 Lesbians, Gay men, and supporters participated in the first National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, the largest gathering of its kind up to that time and an unprecedented mass celebration of Gay and Lesbian pride.

The 1979 March brought together an incredibly diverse body of what was largely local activism into a unified national movement and marked the tenth anniversary of Stonewall.
