100% love it
Home of gay rights activist Dr. Franklin E. Kameny

Dr. Franklin E. Kameny was a landmark figure in articulating and achieving gay civil rights in federal employment and in reversing the medical community’s view on homosexuality as a mental disorder. The National Park Service recognized the historic significance of his activism and listed his home in the National Register of Historic Places in 2011. For years, Dr. Kameny’s residence served as a meeting place, archives, informal counseling center, headquarters of the Mattachine Society, and a safe haven for visiting gay and lesbian activists.
