He was a pioneer in so many areas of life from Science to Human Rights. He was a man who just wanted to do his work but his life out of work was the reason he was fired and banned from working. His fight to divide right from wrong would pave the way for so many of us in the LGBT community. His name was Frank Kameny and he died October 11, 2011. He was 86 years old.
Frank was fired for being homosexual and took his wrongful dismissal to the Supreme Court of the United States of America. He lost his case but that didn’t matter for generations to come…he was heard! He continued throughout his life to bring a voice the the LGBT Community.
Thank you Frank Kameny for your sacrifice and great work.
