The Veterans Day annual Wreath Laying Ceremony for LGBT Veterans hosted by Center Military, DCHomos, the D.C. Center and the Human Rights Campaign of Greater Washington Steering Committee is Monday, Nov. 11 from noon-1:30 p.m. at the Congressional Cemetery (1801 E St., S.E.). The public is invited to this free event.
Local LGBT residents unite each year as Americans pause to recognize all who have given their lives in defense of freedom. This annual ceremony is held at the grave of Technical Sgt. Leonard Matlovich who in 1975 became the first gay service member to publicly reveal his sexuality and challenge the military’s LGBT-exclusion policies.
