The National Constitution Center in partnership with the William Way LGBT Community Center announced the opening of “Speaking Out for Equality: The Constitution, Gay Rights, and the Supreme Court“: which chronicles the gay rights movement and the ongoing debate over how much the Constitution protects gay rights on June 5. The organizers encourage visitors to hear the story, see articles and photos, and tell them what you think about the Supreme Court’s upcoming decision about whether the Constitution protects the right to same-sex marriage.
The exhibition coincides with the 50th anniversary of the July 4, 1965 Annual Reminder demonstration, which took place in front of
Independence Hall in Philadelphia and was the first in a series of gay rights marches to specifically demand equal rights.
Speaking Out for Equality was created in partnership with the William Way LGBT Community Center.
