THE MARK IN AMERICA, ISSUE 1, PAGE 11
FEBRUARY 9, 2016
I had attended the second Gay, Lesbian and Bi-sexual March on Washington in October of 1987 with my spouse, John Callahan (and had made a side trip to NYC then as well). This time I was attending stag and had a completely different experience than the first, mostly a slight feeling of alienation from the proceedings. It occurred to me, standing on the Mall with a million + Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals, Trans-genders, and supportive camp followers of every race, age, creed, ethnicity, political persuasion that we had nothing in common except that the same people hate us, and that’s good for about 2 minutes of conversation before one has to fish for mutual interests.
Actually, I’m jumping ahead here; I should be covering this in issue 2’s posts, so I’ll shelve this discussion for now.
