June 1970: The Christopher Street Gay Liberation Day March
Richard Davis at the NYC Gay & Lesbian Community Center sends us this wonderful clip about the very first gay pride march in June 1970: The Christopher Street Gay Liberation Day March. Watch members of SAGE reminisce. It's lovely. Watch the entire show here. Tomorrow night the SAGE members featured in this clip will appear on a panel to discuss their experience.
If you'd like to join up with our posse of JMG readers and pals at this year's march, we'll be congregating on the southwest corner of Christopher and Gay in the West Village - the gayest corner of the gayest street on the gayest day of the year. We may just explode in a fireball of glitter and rainbows.
