Frank Kameny, shown here at the Youth Pride Day in D.C. in April, 2011, died at his Washington, D.C. home Oct. 11.

We bid farewell to gay rights pioneer, Frank Kameny, who died this week at age 86. Metro Connection interviewed Kameny for our "Underdogs" show in February 2011; we revisit that conversation, conducted on the stretch of 17th Street NW known as "Frank Kameny Way."
