This week we commemorated the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington. Basically, the event would have never taken place without BAYARD RUSTIN (1912-1987), who was the organizer and the brains behind the entire unprecedented and history-making gathering.
Mr. Rustin was not only a brilliant administrator, he was also a brave, openly gay man, even in the early 60's and at the time of the march. He was a leader in social movements for civil rights, pacifism and non-violence, and gay rights
It is appropriate to give honor where honor is due, so hats off to a great gay man who was ahead of his time!
