Revising Research Question

March 28th, 2014  Tagged , , ,

I have realized through talking with Professor Caffatera, and from doing research myself that my initial question is much too broad. What I am choosing to focus on with the early LGBT movement in DC is the Mattachine Society (run by Frank Kamery), the first public protest for LGBT civil rights in front of the White House in 1965, and the First National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights in 1979.

My new research question is as follows: How did the first public protest for LGBT civil rights, led by Frank Kameny,  and the Mattachine Society contribute to the early LGBT movement in DC? How did this later progress into the development of the First National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights? What impact did these events leave on LGBT culture today?
