1975 Gay Pride Day Photograph


Description from Deacon Maccubin, June 2018:
"The photo of the bearded long-haired hippie holding the proclamation is, indeed, me [Deacon] and it was taken in 1975. The African American man next to me is John A. Wilson who, at the time, was the Ward 2 Councilmember who had introduced the Council’s Gay Pride Proclamation. Wilson continued to serve as Ward 2 Councilman from 1974 to 1991 when he was sworn in as Council Chair, a position he held until his death in 1993.

Immediately behind Mr. Wilson is Franklin Kameny, The “godfather" of the LGBT community in DC. And the dark-haired guy in black thick-rimmed glasses partially visible to Mr. Wilson’s left was Cade Ware, who was President of the GLAA at the time."
