 Born on July 31st 1932, Barbara Gittings “is widely regarded as the mother
of the LGBT civil rights movement” (LGBT History Month, 2006, para. 1). Her
involvement in the movement began in 1956, long before the infamous
Stonewall Riots of 1969 (Stein, 2009). Her prolific pioneering activism
spanned far and wide, including within the world of libraries.  (more at
