Gay Rights March on Washington

May 01, 1993

I watched a portion of the gay and lesbian march on C-Span. Let me first say that in my long business career I have worked side by side with gays and lesbians. These individuals were a pleasure to work with, were highly productive and lived their lives with dignity and pride.

What I witnessed on C-Span was revolting and disgusting. The body language--the obscene signs--the words used in the songs sung by all in the audience and on the stage for national TV viewers--leads me to believe that the march was a disaster for the hopes and objectives of the gay and lesbian community. If these individuals are looking for acceptance in society, they are going about it in the wrong way.
