am a student at a college in Boston, MA, and I
am currently taking a course in public speaking.
For my final project, I have to give a speech,
and I want that speech to be meaningful. I would
like to do a gay rights speech that brings tears
to the eyes of my audience. Do you think you might
be able to help me locate that speech?
idea for your final speech sounds great. To find
a speech specific to gay rights, I suggest that
you contact a gay rights organization like the
Gay & Lesbian Task Force.
the 70s and 80s there were two huge marches in
Washington DC specifically on gay rights - the
latter one was more focused on AIDS. These marches
certainly must have had great presentations. Both
the organizations mentioned above will have information
about the marches. Check out books by Carla Jay
and Urvashi Vaid which are likely to reference
other speeches. Good luck .
