Frank Kameny is considered one of the country's most significant gay rights pioneers whose activism transformed the LGBT rights movement. Kameny's contributions to LGBT equality include co-founding the Mattachine Society of Washington, D.C. in 1961 and founding the East Homophile Organization (ECHO) in 1963. Kameny is also acknowledged for having the federal government lift its ban on the employment of gay and lesbian employees in 1975, a challenge he pursed for almost two decades. Two years later he became the first openly gay person to run for Congress.
