March on Washington: While the idea of a national LGBTQ march on Washington appeared as early as 1973, the assassination of Harvey Milk gave impetus to the effort. The National March to End Discrimination Against Gays and Lesbians was set for October 1979 to coincide with the tenth anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. A major goal was to nationalize the LGBTQ rights movement, which had previously been focused on local struggles.
