1979 March on Washington
for Lesbian & Gay Rights
October 14, 1979
Photo Gallery - Page 6

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!

Since 1975 Ray Hill has been Houston's iconic gay leader, and it is no surprise that he was heavily involved
in the planning of MOW and served as on-stage director, introducing many of the speakers. You will spot
him on stage in the sections for other speakers and performers.
