"The Legacy Walk is a unique opportunity to educate the community about contributions of LGBT people to our civilization. Knowing our history is both inspiring and empowering. Bayard Rustin was a key actor in the Civil Rights movement, serving as an advisor to Dr. Martin Luther King. Even in those days, Rustin was openly and unapologetically gay. His imprint on our nation's history is undeniable, and we felt a responsibility to that history to honor the legacy of Bayard Rustin."
