[Washington, D.C.]:  and . 43 loose color photographs. 34 measure 4” x 5 7/8”, the rest are 3 7/8” x 4¾”. Fine.
This is a collection of photos depicting two different major LGBTQ+ events in Washington, D.C. The nine smaller photos appear to be from 1987's Second National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights which took place on October 11th. These include shots taken on the National Mall showing groups milling about with many signs and banners as well as one photo showing members of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force preparing signs to be given to marchers.
The rest of the photos are from 1993's March on Washington for Lesbian, Gay, and Bi Equal Rights and Liberation which took place on April 25th. Approximately one million people attended this event, and several photos here show marchers holding banners or wearing shirts specifically made for the 1993 March. Several show men in drag, others show crowds on the mall or marching in the street, a few show people around vendor booths. Also of interest is one photo which shows a woman with several stickers attached to her jacket reading “The Dyke March.” According to Wikipedia, “the first Dyke March which occurred was formed in Washington D.C., during the March on Washington for Lesbian, Gay and Bi Equal Rights and Liberation, and held on April 24, 1993. Organized by the Lesbian Avengers, over 20,000 women participated in the march.” At least one other image shows members of the Lesbian Avengers in a small group holding flags with some wearing the flags as capes.
