During the 50 years since, the LGBT movement has gained significant traction in America’s constitutional dialogue, winning victories in several Supreme Court cases that struck down laws limiting the rights of LGBT people. This summer, the Supreme Court will decide whether the Constitution also requires states to recognize same-sex marriages.
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first Annual Reminder march, the National Constitution Center is hosting "Speaking Out for Equality: The Constitution, Gay Rights, and the Supreme Court," an exhibition created in partnership with the William Way LGBT Community Center. "Speaking Out for Equality" will chronicle the movement and the ongoing debate over how much protection is offered by the Constitution.
