Thursday, October 8 | 5 PM

In 1957, Frank Kameny, an astronomer working for the U.S. Defense Department in Hawaii, was dismissed because he was homosexual. Unlike many who faced the same fate, Kameny fought back, founding the Mattachine Society of Washington, the first organization to protest the systematic persecution of gay federal employees. This story of America at a cultural and sexual crossroads is based on firsthand accounts, recently declassified FBI records, and forty thousand personal documents.
