I blogged about my reactions earlier today - here's my final paragraph:

Probably it was Judy Shepherd who moved me most, in spite of being brief. My son came out to us as gay barely a month before the death of Judy’s son in 1998. I was terrified then and I am still terrified by the hate that rages in the hearts of too many Americans. Here are her words: “When you leave here today, don’t forget, the work is being done by you. The President CANNOT do it alone.”

Who owns the giant rainbow flag, and where is it stored between Marches?

In any event, the owners are getting pretty good mileage out of it --- I know it was there in 1993, and I think it was there in 1987 --- and thank the Goddess for polyester, because moths would have destroyed a cotten one by now!

Having seen so many LGBT marches throughout the decades, that huge rainbow flag is itself a historic relic. Hopefully it will land in a GLBT archival library someday, if not the Smithsonian. Long May She Wave!
