Fryer's actions are credited with paving the way for the American Psychiatric Association to remove homosexuality from its list of mental disorders a year after his speech.On Tuesday, a historical marker about Fryer will be unveiled in the Gayborhood — Philadelphia's main social hub for LGBT residents — and across the street from the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, which houses Fryer's archives.
