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.
(10)

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.

AS SEEN ON THE LEGACY WALL: TODAY IN LGBT HISTORY (2011)
Today the Legacy Project commemorates the 10th Anniversary of the repeal of the backwards military policy known colloquially as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” President Barack Obama formally signed the Order of Repeal on December 27, 2010; but it wasn’t until September 20, 2011 – 18 years after President Bill Clinton brought the policy into disastrous effect in 1993 – that #DADT was finally swept into the dustbin of history. In a prepared statement Obama said “Today, the discriminatory law known as “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” is finally and formally repealed. As of today, patriotic Americans in uniform will no longer have to lie about who they are in order to serve the country they love. As of today, our armed forces will no longer lose the extraordinary skills and combat experience of so many gay and lesbian service members. And today, as Commander in Chief, I want those who were discharged under this law to know that your country deeply values your service.” In spite of Obama’s assurances, transgender service members are still waiting to be accorded the respect they have earned through their service to our country. The actions of the current administration have made it clear this is far from over.

ALMOST LIKE HEAVEN: ST. JOHN HENRY NEWMAN
Today the Legacy Project commemorates the beatification of Cardinal John Henry Newman. On September 19, 2010 Pope Benedict XVI officially proclaimed Newman’s beatification in recognition of his holy life and capacity to be venerated for intercession on behalf of individuals who invoke his name in prayer. As a leader of the Oxford Movement, Newman was instrumental in bridging the divide between the Anglican Church of England and the Roman Catholic Church. Beatification is the third of four steps in the canonization process of the Catholic Church and the making of a saint. He was fully canonized on October 13, 2019.

ON THIS DAY IN LGBT HISTORY (1964)
The first gay picket in U.S. History is led by activist RANDY WICKER in front of the Whitehall Street Induction Center in New York City on September 19, 1964. They gathered to protest the U.S. military’s treatment of gay people after the confidentiality of gay men’s draft records were violated. It proved to be a prologue to what would come to be called “The Annual Reminders” – a series of protests which teased at the emerging gay radicalism that would begin bursting at the seams in 1966.

THE MAN WHO LOVED JOHN LENNON
Today the Legacy Project celebrates the birth of music entrepreneur BRIAN EPSTEIN. Though he also managed such acts as Gerry & The Pacemakers, and Cilia Black, his greatest fame came from being the influential manager of The Beatles. Epstein would revolutionize how the ragtag boozy band presented themselves – turning them into pop-icons who would eventually explode ‘across the pond’ with an historic concert debut at Shea Stadium. Epstein was born on September 19, 1934 in Liverpool, England. Read more about Legacy Nominee #BrianEpstein at https://legacyprojectchicago.org/person/brian-epstein.

Today the Legacy Project celebrates the life of 16th-century Spanish nun-turned-soldier ANTONIO DE ERAUSO. Assigned female at birth, he became a living legend for his military adventures on two continents. An absolute sensation for his exploits, de Erauso was an unconventional iconoclast and an incorrigible individualist. He reveled as much in his voracious sexual appetite and self-confessed sexual ambiguity and as he did in the plaudits he received from both the Spanish Crown and the Vatican for his heroism on behalf of Christianity.

Today the Legacy Project celebrates the birth of lesbian social justice pioneer JANE ADDAMS (Newer Ideals of Peace, Peace and Bread in a Time of War), the founder of Hull House and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1931. Though lionized today, Addams’s highly touted pacifism during World War I made her an extremely controversial figure in her own time. She was born on September 6, 1860 in Cedarville, IL. In 2012, thanks to the generosity of #HeartlandAlliance, #JaneAddams was among the inaugural inductees on Chicago’s Legacy Walk. Her bronze memorial can be found in front of the LGBT Senior Residence (a.k.a. “Center on Addison”) at 3600 N. Halsted.
