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. The documents presented here include the cover and table of contents of Adele Starr's program. Note that she is speaking among luminaries such as the Reverend Troy Perry and Eleanor Smeal, president of the National Organization for Women. What did Adele say? You can see the typed script of her remarks in the remaining two slides—including her own edits.

Would I have had the courage to take this step?

 What can I do now to move equality forward?
