Additional Details

This ebullient and optimistic image is considered "the most iconic photograph of Gay Liberation; no image better captures the spirit of the first year after the Stonewall Rebellion." (The Gay & Lesbian Review Worldwide, March-April 2009, p. 28). The image was used on a poster to 'recruit people for the first Gay Pride march in June 1970 on the first anniversary of the Stonewall Riots' (ibid.)
