Title

Support Rally for Gay & Lesbian Rights [broadside]

Description

This broadside advertises a support rally for gay and lesbian civil rights that was held October 8, 1977.

Activists organized the rally in Monroe Park to protest a concert given at the University of Richmond by Anita Bryant, the popular entertainer who evolved into a prominent anti-gay rights crusader in the 1970s.

The rally’s primary speaker, Karla Jay (b. 1947), is the prominent professor, activist and author who published Out of the Closets: Voices of Gay Liberation (1972), with Allen Young. 

Image at bottom shows silhouettes and outlined figures with the caption, "We are your children."
