Stop at the bottom of Cove Avenue on Silver Lake Boulevard. You will see a new sign.
It points out the soon-to-be-renamed Mattachine Steps, just above the Silver Lake Reservoir.
The Mattachine Society--which many believe to be the country's first gay rights group--had its first meeting at a home there on Nov. 11, 1950.
Harry Hay, an early gay rights activist, lived there.
He would have celebrated his 100th birthday on Saturday.
At 11 a.m. on Saturday, will officially rededicate a section of what we have long known as the Cove Avenue Steps.
State senator Mike Gatto will also be join neighbors at the base of the stairs for the event.
He'll present a proclamation honoring Hay, who many call "the father of the gay rights movement."
A picnic on the Silver Lake Meadow will follow.
