LGBTQ Veterans Fundraiser
Each year as Americans we pause to remember the men and women who have given their lives in defense of our freedom. Once again this year on Veterans Day, The DC LGBT community will come together to hold a wreath laying ceremony and memorial service at the Congressional Cemetery.

The ceremony is held at the grave of Technical Sergeant Leonard Matlovich in the LGBT section of the cemetery. Sgt. Matlovich was a Vietnam veteran who rose to fame in 1975 by becoming the first gay service member to publicly reveal his sexuality, challenging the militarys exclusion on gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender Americans. He appeared on the cover of Time Magazine and the front page of The New York Times, speaking out for the rights of LGBT service members until his death in 1988. Adjacent to the grave for Leonard Matlovich is the memorial for our friend, veteran, and local activist Frank Kameny.

Held in honor of the LGBTQ individuals who have served the U.S. as soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, and coast guardsmen. This years service will be held on November 11, 2018, at 12:00 PM at the Congressional Cemetery. Following the ceremony you can then join us upstairs at Mr. Henry's for a fundraiser from 1:00 to 3:00 PM, with food and a cash bar included in your $20 ticket to benefit The DC Center for the LGBTQ Community and the LGBT Fallen Heroes Fund.
