Today the Legacy Project celebrates the birth of gay New York Fire Department Chaplain FR. MYCHAL JUDGE – “The Saint of 9/11”. The man, who would one day be designated the solemn honor of Victim 0001 during the September 11th terrorist attacks, was born on May 11, 1933 in Brooklyn, N.Y. Thanks to the generosity of #DignityChicago, #AGLO, several Dignity Chapters across the country, many individual donors – and one brave Catholic Parish that could not risk being listed out of fear of repercussions – this beautiful bronze memorial to Father Judge, which joined the Legacy Walk in 2014, can be found at 3540 N. Halsted. Read more about #FrMychalJudge at… http://legacyprojectchicago.org/Father_Mychal_Judge.html

1933: ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY N***S STORM THE INSTITUTE OF S*X RESEARCH
The great German s*xologist Magnus Hirschfeld (shown) established the groundbreaking Institute of S*x Research in 1919. (See http://legacyprojectchicago.org/S-HC.html.) Located in Berlin’s Tiergarten, the Institute and its massive research library archive became a major center for gay rights advocacy, along with medical, psychological, and ethnological divisions, as well as marriage and s*x counseling services. But the progressive ideology of the Weimar Republic came to a crashing end when a conservative tidal wave – fueled by anti-Semitism, hatred of multiculturalism, any expression of s*xual diversity, and the dream of a genetically pure “Master Race” – swept Adolf Hi**er into power in January of 1933. Soon thereafter the Institute was targeted for elimination. On May 6, 1933, while Hirschfeld was on a lecture tour of the U.S., students of the Deutsche Studentenschaft began parading in front of the Institute. That night, N***s attacked and looted the archives. Four days later, the priceless trove of research Hirschfeld had amassed served as fuel for an infamous book-burning rally, where some 20,000 books and journals, and 5,000 images, were destroyed. It would be several decades before new research would begin to rebuild the knowledge of human s*xuality that had been lost.

1886: ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY THE WORD HOMOS*XUALITY WAS COINED
The word “Homos*xuality” first appeared in a letter written by pioneering Austrian-Hungarian s*xologist Karl-Maria Kertbeny (pictured, left) to his colleague, German gay rights advocate, Karl Ulrichs on May 6, 1886. It was the first time in recorded history that the term is known to have been used. “Homos*xualität” would not appear in a publicly accessible document – a pamphlet published anonymously by Kertbeny – until the following year. Several German advocates (Germany became the “unofficial language” of the emerging field of s*xology) embraced its use, though for years terms such as “invert” would continue to be used to describe what had for years gone unnamed. “Homos*xuality” would make its debut in English when Richard von Krafft-Ebing’s 1886 Psychopathia S*xualis was translated in 1894. Because any discussion of the subject was considered obscene, it was only through technical journals that information would make it into the hands of the growing number of people who were desperate to understand the condition.

A DARK DAY IN LGBT HISTORY: 1953
In response to the growing hysteria generated by Sen. Joseph McCarthy (shown) and his Red and Lavender Scares, on April 27, 1953 President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed Executive Order 10450 banning homos*xuals from working for the federal government or any of its private contractors. This baseless and bigoted action inspired one of the most effective and prolific gay activists who ever lived: 2013 Legacy Walk Inductee Frank Kameny. His outrage over losing his job at the U.S. Map Service drove him to alter the trajectory of the Gay Rights Movement out of anger at the federal government and every institution that terrorized people into remaining in the closet.
