DeEvening Links: Farewell to Frank


Kameny in 2005 (Jahi Chikwendiu - TWP)
The Blade’s Lou Chibbaro Jr. reports that donations are being sought for Frank Kameny’s funeral, to be held in the next two weeks. Tax-deductable contributions can be sent to Helping Our Brothers and Sisters, the organization that helped defray many of the pioneering gay-rights activist’s living expenses in his last years. Chibarro also reports that Kameny’s ashes might be buried in Congressional Cemetery near Leonard Matlovich, who, with Kameny’s assistance, in 1975 became the first active-duty member of the military to come out publicly.
