Dignity/Central PA started meeting in 1974 and became officially chartered in 1975 as a chapter of Dignity/USA, an organization of LGBT Catholics and their friends. In this photo, some of the founding members gather on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the chapter, with guest speaker gay British author and actor Quentin Crisp (third from left). Dignity/Central PA remains as the oldest continually operating LGBT organization in central Pennsylvania.; Photo courtesy of the History Project of the LGBT Center of Central PA, Archives and Special Collections, Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA.
