The LGBT Civil Rights Movement in Washington

6:30 pm to 9:00 pm

Location: State Capitol Museum

Cost: Free, with suggested $2 donation

As Washington State celebrates its 125th year, for one group of Washingtonians – those in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community, the history of the last 25 years in particular has been a time of profound change. A panel discussion at the State Capital Museum in Olympia at 7pm on October 28, as part of the programs commemorating the state’s anniversary, will explore this struggle for equality and how far we’ve yet to go.
Twenty-five years ago in our state, most LGBT individuals had to remain invisible or risk losing their jobs and their homes. Most were not allowed to take time off work to care for a loved one or get health coverage from their employer for their life partner. The HIV/AIDS crisis was affecting lives and communities in excruciating ways. Much of the public viewed LGBT Washingtonians through the lens of myths and stereotypes. Ballot measures had been proposed repeatedly to ban LGBT Washingtonians from being able to teach or marry. The fight for LGBT rights was never easy and never a certainty. Indeed, there were times until quite recently when it seemed impossible that civil rights would ever be attained.
During the discussion, five people who have been involved in the movement over those years will share their reflections about what life was like for LGBT Washingtonians 25 years ago, what has changed since then, what led to those changes, and what is yet to be accomplished. The panel discussion will be led by Judge Anne Levinson (ret.), and will include Rep. Laurie Jenkins of the 27th Legislative District in Pierce County, LGBT rights activist Jeffrey Hedgepeth, founder of the Ingersoll Gender Center Marsha Botzer, and David Ward, Legal and Legislative Counsel at Legal Voice. The program is free, but a $2 suggested donation is suggested. Doors open at 6:30pm and the program begins at 7pm.
