Flash Back Gallery - 1993 March On Washington

Bill Clinton had only been in office a few months before the 1993 March On Washington occurred in the nation's capital. The 1993 March On Washington saw almost 1,000,000 LGBT, friends and allies from all over the United States, its territories and several friendly countries on April 25, 1993. President Clinton was not there, but Hillary was and she delivered a proclamation. Politicians and leaders spoke on The Mall, and Leather made a huge presence, just as it had in the 1987 March On Washington.

Happy Holidays - A look at the last 20 years - Flash Back Gallery

This week I have scoured my photo file of the last 20 years and have come up with about 25 or so gems I think you will like. Most of these are from Southern California with clubs such as Avatar Club Los Angeles' Wreath Auctions and Krampus, Regiment of the Black and Tans with Toast to the Season, Satyrs MC Anniversary parties after Thanksgiving, ONYX Southwest, California B&B Corps with their parties at the Tom of Finland House, San Diego clubs combined party, and the Tom of Finland Foundation's huge bash complete with professional carolers and Muscle-bound Santa Claus.

Graphic artist Daimon Rowanchilde from Toronto was creating terrific art in several mediums in the early 90s. One of his illustrations was The Leather Journal, Issue #47's cover.

The 1993 March On Washington got 10 pages of coverage. Dave Rhodes got a few photos from the Los Angeles Gay Rodeo. NLA: Austin's Texas Leather Pride drew Leatherfolk from all over the Lone Star State and dignitaries from all over the country the first week of May. A boat cruise to Hippie Hollow on Lake Travis brings about 5,000 sunbathers and NLA: Austin has added it to the weekend each year.

The Pagan article that appeared in Issue #43 got the Christians to respond; Reverend Bob Arthur defines the word "Christian."
