    One thought on “Gay Day: The Golden Age of the Christopher Street Parade 1974-1983”

    1. The photo captions by Allen Ginsberg are absolutely awful; did he actually think he was being clever or witty or funny in any way? Some of them make no sense whatsoever, and some of them are just plain bad. But I enjoyed the photos themselves. I love seeing what gay life used to be like in the carefree hedonistic days of the 1970s, before AIDS hit and life changed.
