A two-block section of street in the heart of Dupont Circle, Washington, D.C.'s gay neighborhood, was renamed Thursday morning in honor of LGBT civil rights pioneer Frank Kameny.

According to the Washington Blade, "Frank Kameny Way" was designated on a two-block section of 17th Street between P and R streets, N.W.

"D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty was scheduled to preside over a ceremony and the installation of a new street sign Thursday to officially put in place the Frank Kameny Way street designation. The ceremony was to be part of a long list of events associated with Capital Pride, the city's annual LGBT community celebration."

The street designation was supported unanimously by members of the Dupont Circle Advisory Neighborhood Commission, which holds jurisdiction over the area, according to the Blade.
