Mattachine Steps Dedication

A ceremony in the Silver Lake district of Los Angeles marks the "Hay Day" of the movement with the christening of a historical marker on the steps leading up to the home of gay rights pioneer Harry Hay, site of the first meetings of the Mattachine Society in the early 1950s. Celebrating the centennial of Hay's birth are fellow Radical Faerie and writer Mark Thompson, the Rev. Malcolm Boyd of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, California Assemblyman Mike Gatto, local gay historical preservationist Wes Joe, Silver Lake Neighborhood Council member Elizabeth Bougart, longtime Hay neighbors David Byrd and Jolino Becerra, and L.A. City Councilman Eric Garcetti. Vash Boddie reports from the scene.
