Franklin Kameny (1925-2011) was a Harvard-trained astronomer and World War II veteran. He was fired from the Army Map Service for refusing to answer questions about his sexual orientation. President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s executive order left thousands without their civil service jobs because of their sexual orientation. Dr. Kameny endured a four-year legal battle against the concept of sexual orientation being unfitting for federal service. Although unsuccessful, it was the first equal-rights claim regarding sexual orientation. Kameny co-founded the Mattachine Society of Washington that focused on achieving equal legal and social rights for homosexuals. Eventually, the Civil Service Commission abandoned its policy. As a result of Kameny’s activism, homosexuality was removed as a psychic disorder by the American Psychiatric Association. and in 1998 President Clinton banned sexual orientation discrimination in federal employment.
