Frank Kameny: In celebration of Pride Month, Google honors gay rights activist with Doodle

Frank Kameny Google Doodle: The image on its homepage, which reveals Kameny wearing a colorful garland, pays tribute to him as we enter the month of June, which is celebrated globally as ‘Pride Month’.

The Google Doodle on Wednesday honors Dr. Frank Kameny, an American astronomer, World War II veteran, and gay rights activist. The image on its homepage, which reveals Kameny wearing a colorful garland, pays tribute to him as we enter the month of June, which is well known globally as ‘Pride Month’.

Google describes Kameny as “one of the vital prominent figures of the US LGBTQ rights motion” and thanks to him “for courageously paving the best way for many years of progress”.

Kameny was born on Could 21, 1925, in Queens, New York. He enrolled at Queens School at the younger age of 15 to check physics. Kameny fought in World Battle II earlier than acquiring a doctorate in astronomy from Harvard College. In 1957, he turned an astronomer with the Military Map Service, however, lost his job a number of months later after the government banned members of the LGBTQ group from federal employment.

Kameny sued the government, and in 1961, filed the first gay rights attraction to the US Supreme Court.

Kameny organized one of many first homosexual rights advocacy teams within the US. Within the early 1970s, he challenged the American Psychiatric Affiliation’s classification of homosexuality as a psychological dysfunction.

Over 50 years after he was fired from the Military Map Service, the US government, in 2009, formally apologized to Kameny.

In June 2010, Washington D.C. named a stretch of 17th Avenue NW close to Dupont Circle “Frank Kameny Way”.

Kameny died on October 11, 2011, in Washington D.C.
