Today the Legacy Project commemorates the anniversary of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in California that PROPOSITION 8 – the referendum which banned same-sex marriage in that state – violated the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment.

02/04/2020

Today the Legacy Project commemorates the passing of lesbian novelist and writer PATRICIA HIGHSMITH (Strangers on a Train, The Talented Mr. Ripley, The Two Faces of January, Deep Water). The blindingly talented Highsmith also wrote the lesbian novel The Price of Salt (under the pseudonym Claire Morgan) which was made into the Academy Award-nominated film “Carol” in 2016. She is perhaps best known for the “Ripley” series and “Strangers on a Train” – which became an Alfred Hitchcock classic. A product of an extremely disturbing childhood, Highsmith had a knack for drawing audience sympathy towards characters who were often deeply flawed and morally questionable. She became exceedingly erratic, intolerant and controversial as she aged. This complex woman died on February 4, 1995 at the age of 74 in Locarno, Switzerland.

The History of Sodomy Laws in the United States - Illinois

IT ALL STARTED IN ILLINOIS…
Today the Legacy Project commemorates the 58th anniversary of the Illinois legislature’s vote to eliminate the state’s sodomy statute on January 28, 1961 as part of sweeping statutory reforms. When the change went into effect on January 1, 1962 Illinois became the first state in the U.S. to overturn its sodomy laws 41 years before the Supreme Court would rule all such statutes unconstitutional in 2003. Read more about it at… http://www.glapn.org/sodomylaws/sensibilities/illinois.htm

After the Revolution, Illinois, as part of the original Northwest Territory, received the English buggery law with a 1795 Northwest Territory ordinance,1 thus making sodomy a capital offense for males only.

The Pink Triangle | Legacy Project Chicago

FOR MANY THE HOLOCAUST WAS ONLY THE BEGINNING….
Today the Legacy Project commemorates the 76th Anniversary of liberation of the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz on January 26, 1944. As the world celebrates the end of the horror, it is important to remember that when the Allies came in to liberate the camps, everyone was freed – except for the men with the Pink Triangles. Because homosexuals were defined as criminals under Germany’s Paragraph 175 statute, those who were gay remained imprisoned. While others were repatriated and returned to their families, the gay men who had survived the Holocaust were unable to even relate the saga of their torture for fear of outing themselves to a hostile society. No celebrations. No tearful reunions. No commiseration with friends. No community of survivors with which to share their stories. This outrage was immortalized in bronze in the fall of 2015 when “The Story of the Pink Triangle” joined the Legacy Walk, thanks to the ongoing generosity of #PaulHighfield and The Highfield Group. The memorial can be found in front of the Howard Brown clinic at 3245 N. Halsted. To learn more about the #PinkTriangle please go to http://www.legacyprojectchicago.org/The_Pink_Triangle.html.

The Legacy Project illuminates and affirms the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people to honor their experiences and accomplishments; to collect and preserve their contributions to world history and culture.

Today the Legacy Project commemorates the passing of Ugandan activist DAVID KATO, who is often described as “Uganda’s first openly gay man.” He made the decision to come out publicly at the nation’s first gay rights news conference in order to put a human face on urgent efforts to counter the anti-LGBT frenzy sweeping his country because of hysteria purposefully whipped up by U.S.-based Christian Evangelicals. Kato was bludgeoned to death on January 26, 2011 in Mukono Town, Uganda after the names, photos, and addresses of several gay rights activists were published in a Ugandan tabloid Rolling Stone under the headline, “Hang Them!” His murder became a catalyzing force for his country’s struggling LGBT movement. Kato was inducted onto Chicago’s Legacy Walk in 2014, courtesy of #StoliGroupUSA. His bronze memorial can be found in front of the Center on Addison LGBT Senior Residence at 3600 N. Halsted.
