The Legacy Project

The Legacy Project The World's only Museum Walk, Traveling Exhibit, and Education Program created to combat Anti-Gay Bullying by celebrating LGBTQ Contributions to History.
(3)

A non-profit 501(c)3 charity devoted to sharing, celebrating, and promoting LGBT achievements and contributions to world history and culture as a means to counter the negative stereotypes that contribute to bullying LGBTQ youth in schools.

Mission: THE LEGACY PROJECT intends to inform, inspire, enlighten, and foster an appreciation for the many roles Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) people have played in the advancement of world history and culture. The contributions of LGBT people have been overlooked, redacted, or removed entirely from nearly every textbook ever written - fueling destructive cultural marginalization for centuries. THE LEGACY WALK stands as permanent tribute to the lives and accomplishments of people who have made a difference in the world we share.

November 20: Transgender Day of Remembrance
Today the Legacy Project commemorates National Transgender Day of Remembrance in memory of all those who have fallen victim to the epidemic of violence against Trans people, especially Trans women of color. Brutal murders, ill-conceived “bathroom laws”, the ongoing disrespect of Trans service members, and the current U.S. president’s stated goal to erase the very existence of all Trans people are proof that none of us is safe so long as any of us must still fight for survival. Throughout the day we will be featuring Trans heroes whose courage and accomplishments, in spite of incredible odds, are both a source of pride and a beacon of hope.

We will begin with MARSHA P. JOHNSON, whose miraculous, buoyant life ended in a violent, mysterious death 25 years ago. Her bronze memorial on the Legacy Walk can be found in front of Center on Halsted at 3656 N. Halsted. For more information about #MarshaPJohnson please check out https://legacyprojectchicago.org/person/marsha-p-johnson.

ON THIS DAY IN LGBT HISTORY (1901)
Today the Legacy Project commemorates “LOS 41” – The Dance of the Forty-One – which took place on November 17, 1901 in Mexico City. When the police illegally raided a private gay dance, they found 19 men dressed as women. In all 41 were arrested in what became a national scandal that caused even the number 41, itself, to become taboo. For this reason, in Mexico there is no 41st division in the military, no number 41 on the payroll, no room 41 in many hotels and hospitals, street numbers skip 41, and some men even skip their 41st birthday for fear of being considered gay. For more basic information go to… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dance_of_the_Forty-One. You should also check-out this video https://youtu.be/CqD8U9G5FHw to learn about an organization in Mexico working to reclaim the number 41 in much the same way we fought to reclaim “Queer” in the early 1990s.

ON THIS DAY IN LGBTQ HISTORY (1952)
Today the Legacy Project celebrates the birth of GLENN BURKE – the first (and still the only) gay major league baseball player known to have been outed to his team while still actively playing. Burke’s career was short-lived – and suffused with challenges and tragedy – but he played with heart and honesty and remains an inspiration to whomever will one day have the courage to step into his shoes. He was born on November 16, 1952 in Oakland, CA. For more information on Legacy Candidate for Induction #GlennBurke check out… https://legacyprojectchicago.org/person/glenn-burke

AS SEEN ON THE LEGACY WALL
Today the Legacy Project commemorates the publication of lesbian author RADCLYFFE HALL’s seminal novel The Well of Loneliness. After it was judged by the British courts to be “obscene” on November 16, 1928, it was banned from further publication and distribution and all existing copies of it were ordered destroyed – instantly making it one of the most celebrated and sought-after novels in the world. The book’s excoriation by “proper” society made it a cause célébre by the literary intelligentsia which lined up to defend it. By the time it came up against similar moralistic resistance in the U.S. it had been reprinted six times. With copies now in 14 languages, The Well of Loneliness has never been out of print since its initial publication in 1928. This groundbreaking literary achievement has probably influenced the lives of more lesbians than any other book ever written.

ON THIS DAY IN LGBT HISTORY (1950): THE MATTACHINE SOCIETY
Today the Legacy Project celebrates the creation of the early homophile organization “The Mattachine Society” (originally called the Society of Fools) which met for the first time November 11, 1950 in the living room of Harry Hay in Los Angeles, CA. Drawing its name from medieval French renaissance secret societies and the papier-mâché masks they wore to their conceal identities, the group’s core members – Hay, Rudi Gernreich, William Dale Jennings, Bob Hull, and Chuck Rowland – met in secret during the early years, forced to use false names so that their true identities could not be revealed to the authorities in the likely event any were arrested for being gay.

Though he is not a nominee, today the Legacy Project wishes to commemorate the death of Chicago newspaper columnist, essayist, and activist JON-HENRI DAMSKI (Angels into Dust, Damski-To-Go). As 1/4 of the fabled "Gang of Four", Jon-Henri's connections with movers and shakers at City Hall was instrumental in securing passage of the Chicago Human Rights Ordinance in 1988. Sometimes controversial, often mystifyingly obtuse, always delightful and inspirational… Jon-Henri was the longest running columnist published in the LGBT press in the U.S. at the time of his death. He passed away of complications due to malignant melanoma on November 1, 1997 at age 60 in Chicago, IL.

Today the Legacy Project celebrates the birth of Dr. Tom Waddell. A former Olympic decathlete (1968 Mexico City Games), Waddell’s belief in the power of sports to build a sense of community across many diverging social and demographic groups was the driving force behind his concept for what became “The Gay Games,” which he established in San Francisco in 1982. Tom Waddell was born on November 1, 1937, and was inducted onto Chicago’s Legacy Walk in 2013 thanks to the tireless efforts of the late Dick Uyvari. Tom’s bronze memorial can be found at 3512 N.
