1979 March on Washington

October 14, 1979
Photo Gallery - Page 10

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!

Gotham was a cabaret trio formed in 1973 by Gary Herb, Michael Pace and Jonathan Morrow.
David McDaniel replaced Morrow in 1975. The group was known for their comedy as much as their
singing, and they became enormously successful in the 70's and 80's. An important aspect of the group
was that they did it all as an openly gay act, and accordingly was the first openly gay
group to play both the Kennedy Center in Washington DC (1976) and Carnegie Hall in NYC (1978).
I was honored to do for my radio show a comprehensive interview with them on my April 2004 show.
Sadly, all three of them have passed away, so it was a special thrill to have seen them at the MOW.
