[Images: Photos from a queer rights protest march during the 1980’s. The first image is of a group of dark skinned female identifying people, one of which is just wearing a bra as a top, one woman holding a sign that says “Homo Don’t Play That”, another holding one saying “Dyke Rights” with an inverted pink triangle underneath. The second photo is of a group holding signs, and one man holding a large one that reads “Claim your Power”. Third image is of a man wearing a headband made out of a flowery scarf, covered with stickers that read with homosexual based pejoratives. The fourth image is of a man wearing vivid make up of light blues, pinks, and white, with a large scruffy beard, holding a sign. Fifth image is of a woman wearing sunglasses with short, puffy hair. Her arms are lifted. Final imag is of a group of people in front of a gay pride flag, one man holding a sign that is cut off from the image. From what is showing, it reads “Lies”.]
