NCOD was founded in 1988 by Robert Eichberg and Jean O’Leary. Eichberg, who died in 1995 of complications from AIDS, was a psychologist from New Mexico. O’Leary was an openly lesbian political leader and long-time activist from New York and was at the time the head of the National Gay Rights Advocates in Los Angeles. The original date of NCOD was chosen because it marked the anniversary of the 1987 National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. The first recorded NCOD celebration in Las Vegas was in 1991. We will also celebrate Nevada’s two-year anniversary of marriage equality.
