National Science Foundation in Arlington VA honors LGBT Pride Month; recognize Alan Turing

The National Science Foundation in the Ballston area of Arlington VA has an exhibit for LGBT Pride along the upper level indoor walkway that leads from the Mall to the Metro. 

The mural includes a slide show that includes photos (black and white) from Stonewall, Harvey Milk’s time, and early gay history.

 There is  also a poster, “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Month: LGBT Equality: How we got here from there”., a talk by Ron Buckmire, on June 27.  I’m not sure if it is reserved only for NSF employees.
  
There’s also homage to Alan Turing, without whom WWII might not have been won, and Frank Kameny.
