Final Project

February 19th, 2014  Tagged , , , , ,

Based on what we discussed in class today, I plan on further exploring my topic about The LGBT Movement and History in DC. I think that this will be the most interesting topic for me to research, and the one that I will be the most passionate about exploring more deeply. LGBT issues and history need to be brought to the forefront of study, and perhaps my research could help other people become more informed.

The next step in researching this topic is compiling actual research. I need to decide what years of history I really want to focus on, primarily the starting date, and figure out where the movement really began. I need to create a rough outline of what I want to discover through my research. The movement for LGBT rights truly began with the Stonewall Riots of 1969 in New York City. I need to figure out what happened in DC in response to that, and what the first demonstration in for LGBT rights in DC was. I need to compile a list of potential resources to look through, such as pulling links from The Library of Congress, Diijo, Google searches, the GMU library databases, and so forth. Essentially, I just need to begin my research with very basic searches in various databases.
