National LGBTQ Wall Of Honorees 2024

By Charlotte Robinson, June 10, 2024

The International Imperial Court Council & the National LGBTQ Task Force will add 6 individuals at the 6th annual National LGBTQ Wall of Honor at the historic Stonewall Inn. The ceremony will take place on June 27th at 6P at 53 Christopher Street in NYC. Nicole Murray Ramirez Founder of the LGBTQ Wall of Honor & City/County Commissioner stated, “As a Latino & LGBTQ activist for over 55 years I strongly believe more than ever that any community, indeed any civil rights movement, that doesn't know where it came from & whose shoulders it stands on doesn't really know where it's going.” This year’s 2024 honorees are Cecilia Gentili who was an Argentine American advocate for the rights of transgender people & sex workers. David Mixner the political activist & author best known for his work in anti-war & gay rights advocacy. Sakia Gunn a 15-year-old African American lesbian who was murdered in 2003 in what has been deemed a hate crime in Newark, NJ. ABilly S. Jones-Hennin an LGBTQ rights activist based in Washington, D.C. Charles Henry the first openly gay law enforcement officer & sergeant with the NYC Police Department & Larry Baza a lifelong advocate of the arts & served as chair of San Diego’s Commission for arts & culture. Kierra Johnson, Executive Director of the National LGBTQ Task Force concluded, “Seeing the names of Sakia Gunn, Cecilia Gentili & ABilly S. Jones-Hennin on the Wall of Honors, along with dozens of icons, trailblazers & movement leaders, reminds me that courage is the lifeblood of our movement, forging a path forward, inspiring us to continue our fight to insist on the right to exist freely and authentically.”
