On Locust Street from 11th to 13th, you are not only on Locust, but you are also on Barbara Gittings Way. In 2012, Philadelphia dedicated this section of the street to honor the notable feminist, and Philadelphia resident, from the 1960s. Gittings was an activist that focused on LGBT equality and ran the first lesbian publication, The Ladder. She is most famous for her work with the American Psychiatric Association to remove homosexuality as a mental illness. In 1965, she participated in the first gay picket line, the Annual Reminders, right in front of our own Independence Hall.
