1979 March on Washington
for Lesbian & Gay Rights
October 14, 1979
Photo Gallery - Page 8

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!

Holly Near and Meg Christian were two of the iconic artists in the history of women's music,
and Meg would go on to "retire" from music in 1983 to devote her efforts to spirituality,
a loss many mourned. For radio I did a special tribute show honoring Meg in February 2012.
And I am pleased to add these photos of her along with those of Holly Near,
who is still making wonderful music. I had the honor of interviewing Holly
on my Queer Music Heritage show for January 2010.
Imagine her performing "Singing for Our Lives" and "Over the Rainbow."
