Leonard P. Matlovich

IN 1975, Tech. Sgt. Leonard Matlovich, became the first to bring the government's discrimination against military gays and lesbians to national debate. He volunteered to tell his superiors that he was gay in order to create a test case.

Matlovich took his campaign to the media. Every outlet he could reach.

Despite his 12 years of exemplary service, his extraordinary performance ratings, his Bronze Star, his Purple Heart, and his shrapnel wounds, the Air Force demanded his discharge simply because he was gay. 
Upon his discharge in 1975 he said:
"Maybe not in my lifetime, but we are going to win in the end."

He fought them in court for years, securing a ruling that the Air Force had failed to justify their discrimination. NBC dramatized his challenge in the first made-for-TV movie about a living gay person, and his example inspired many others to join the fight against Pentagon prejudice and countless people to come out.

Back in the early 80s, as a “Local Media Personality”, yours truly was invited to a reception for the Tech Sgt! I remember being very impressed with the short conversation we were allowed to have.

Wherever he went, he told audiences:
"I'm intensely proud to be gay and you should be, too. Unless we state our case, we'll continue to be robbed of our role models, our heritage, our history, and our future."

He was still speaking out for LGBT rights in the rain at a Sacramento
gay rights demonstration just six weeks before he died on June 22nd, 1988.

"He had the knack for taking your heart and making it catch for a moment. He seemed to make people want to be braver than perhaps they were."
- Neely Tucker, The Washington Post

"He was the Charles Lindbergh of the Gay Movement."
- Author & civil rights activist Malcolm Boyd

"The American Revolution continued in the fight of Sergeant Leonard Matlovich."
- Rear Admiral Jamie Barnett (Ret)

Both The Advocate and Philadelphia's Equality Forum have honored him as one of the Movement's great heroes. On the 20th anniversary of his death
then-San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom declared it Leonard Matlovich Day in San Francisco, and a bronze plaque marking where he once lived in
the Castro was dedicated.

In 2009, four generations of gay rights activists honored him in Washington DC, and he is memorialized in Chicago's "outdoor museum" of LGBT history, the Legacy Walk.
