Ray Navarro as Jesus, and Protest of the Catholic Church on Condoms

The Milwaukee LGBT Community Center honors the memory of ACT UP activist Ray Navarro. Navarro lead the 1989 protest on St. Patrick's Cathedral. He founded DIVA TV which broadcast many of ACT UP's demonstrations, civil disobedience actions and public reaction to the group from the streets of New York as the AIDS crisis unfolded there.

Here's a particularly interesting couple of clips from a great documentary of 2012. I grabbed these clips from "How to Survive a Plague", a great documentary...

During Hispanic Heritage Month, we honor the memory of Sylvia Rivera. After the Stonewall Riots, Sylvia joined the new Gay Activists Alliance and began working furiously to pass a gay rights bill in New York City. She was even arrested for climbing the walls of City Hall to crash a closed-door meeting on the bill. Sylvia and Marsha saw that the needs of street youth and transgender youth were not being taken in account by other early gay groups. They founded STAR to fill this gap. STAR House was the first LGBT youth shelter in North America. It was the first trans woman of color led organization in the USA, and it served as a model for future service based organizations across the country.
