20th anniversary of 1st gay march

Irvine -- Subversity, a KUCI public affairs program, today takes a stroll down memory lane, looking back at the first gay and lesbian march in Washington D.C. 20 years ago this past week.

We will bring you speeches from the event and recollections from show host Dan Tsang, who marched with fellow Asians down the Black neigborhood and Chinatown in D.C. before meeting with the main marchers for the march to the Washington Monument.

Speeches at the rally include those by Kate Millett, Allen Ginsberg, Robin Tyler and Tom Robinson of the TRB band.

Gay Insurgent, which Tsang edited, in its 1980 #6 issue, reprinted speeches by Audre Lorde and Tana Loy at the people of color conference preceding the march.
