We are the people!!
The art: Sam Durant. We Are The People, installation view at Project Row House, Houston, TX, 2003.
The news: “Postscript: Franklin Kameny,” by Amy Davidson for The New Yorker’s website. The picture that runs with Davidson’s story is one of the most famous human rights photos in American history. Kameny is the second figure from the right.
Durant’s work about protest signs comes directly from protests such as the ones Kameny helped lead at the White House.
It may well be that no one in America is more responsible for increasing equality for gays and lesbians here than Frank Kameny. Read everything about him you can. RIP.
