LGBTMy topic is people from LGBT. LGBT stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender and along with heterosexual, they describe people’s sexual orientation or gender identity. These people I will be talking about were dealing with people who didn’t accuse gays or lesbians or transgender. My first person is Babara Gitting, the next one is Bayard Routine, finally Havey milk.
Barbara Gitting was a gay activist. “Yes, she was in an equal loving relationship Tobin.” She helps homosexuality being removed from the American Psychiatric Association. Legend has it she would hitch-hike to New York at the weekends dressed in male drag. Gittings headed up the New York branch of the Daughters of Bilitis (DOB) in the 1950s - the USA's first lesbian civil rights organization. “In the 1970s, she was a prominent member of the American Psychiatric Association’s fight to get homosexuality removed from the list of psychiatric disorders.
In 2006, The APA recognized her work by awarding her its first annual civil rights award.”
Bayard Rustin was close to the advisor to Luther King. In his prison record describe him as an “admitted homosexual”. Who helps increase our civil rights. Bayard Rustin, who is not only gay he is black and deals with discrimination. “In 1948, Rustin served time in prison for refusing to go to war.” “one reason, perhaps, why Rustin hasn’t received the same recognition as others in the civil rights movement. He died on August 24, 1987, in Manhattan, New York, NY. Walter Naegle, right, became partners in the 1970s and were together until Rustin's death.
