1979 March on Washington
for Lesbian & Gay Rights
October 14, 1979
Photo Gallery - Page 5

These photos were borrowed from the Botts Collection, and then digitized. They were taken
by Larry Butler. I need some help in identifying many of the people in them, especially some
of the pre-March rally speakers and performers, which is why I have numbered them.
If you can ID someone, please
email me with the name and photo number. Thanks!

There was a special parade contigent for the parents of gays & lesbians. Since the founding of PFLAG in 1973
the group gradually grew and following the MOW representatives met in Washington DC for the first time. I have grouped
together in this section folks obviously representing PFLAG and those other parents whose signs spoke loud and clear.
