LGBT Rights Movement pioneer RANDY WICKER joined activists spanning four decades of the fight against the military's ban on gays at the DADT protest and memorial for Leonard Matlovich, the first gay servicemenber to challenge the ban, on October 10, 2009, the day before the National Equality March in Washington DC. Randy was one of the best known members of Mattachine New York in the late 50s and 60s with a gift for generating media attention the movement had not previously had and demanding greater militancy many were not ready for. Among many achievements, he was one of the organizers of the very first gay demonstration in the U.S.—a protest against antigay military policies in 1964 at New York's Whitehall Induction Station—five years before Stonewall. Known for his generosity to others, he remains very much active in the fight for equality for all.
