Influencing the Movement for LGBTQ Rights
Mark Segal, gay rights pioneer, discusses how the civil rights movement impacted the fight for LGBT rights. He stated, "Martin Luther King [...] embodies the charisma that got the majority of Americans actively interested in what civil rights really was about. We had one difference between the African-American plight and our own. We were an invisible group of people [...] People didn't know who LGBT people were."
