The National Constitution Center Exhibit
“Speaking Out for Equality: The Constitution, Gay Rights, and the Supreme Court” was produced by the William Way LGBT Community Center for the 50th anniversary of the first Annual Reminder Day demonstration at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, PA. Its setting at the National Constitution Center inspired the exhibit’s focus on LGBT civil rights court challenges of national significance. Originally scheduled for a four-month run, beginning June 3, 2015, the exhibit was extended to January 3, 2016, and was visited by over 25,000 people. It was the first exhibit of its kind at a national museum.

Chris Bartlett, Director, William Way LGBT Community Center
