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

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!

In 1979 I was living in Norfolk and a gang of us went to the March, and my friend Dennis Buckland and I went to the Rally.
Flash forward to this year, and I was doing research at the Botts Collection, looking for photos of Charles Law for use
in The Banner Project. I was just flipping through the 40 photo envelopes (of about 40 photos each), when I was
stunned to find myself in a photo, and then another, and another. What were the odds that a Houston photographer
would capture me at the Rally. I am indulging myself in showing those three photos, and a blowup inset one.
