I'm not sure if this is the best place for this thread, if it isn't mods please move to correct place.


Documents from gay rights history are on display for the first time at the Library of Congress as part of an exhibit on the nation’s constitutional history and civil rights protections.

The documents come from gay rights pioneer Frank Kameny, who was fired as a government astronomer in 1957 because he was gay. The library is showing Kameny’s 1961 petition to the U.S. Supreme Court, contesting his firing.

The library quietly placed the documents on view at the end of April in an exhibit called “Creating the United States,” which traces the evolution of the nation’s founding documents and legal framework.

So I think this is good news, Govt. should have no say in people's personal lives
Though I think that the sexual orientation should have no place in the Library of Congress I guess it's more for the fight of rights more than it is sexual orientation and in that case it does have it's place in the library.

I would rather see a world where sexual orientation is a non-issue because... I mean to each their own at the end of the day but we do not live in that world unfortunately.

I am a very pro-choice person, though I do not always agree with other pro-choicers on what topics can be labelled under pro-choice but I thought this was a good article with good news so I thought I would post it.

Thank You
MA

Very insightful statement. I agree with you on this. It's good news and will be a part of history.
