Outsiders, rebels...Pioneers!

Ways in which to protect those that you love...the 'gay creativity' comes to the fore.

If you are going to make a statement about love...this is how you do it!

Bayard Rustin...a very important person.

Bayard Rustin was the organizer of the March on Washington and one of the leaders of the civil rights movement. In the 1980s Bayard adopted his younger boyfriend Walter Naegle to obtain the legal protections of marriage. In this intimate love story, Walter remembers Bayard and a time when gay marriage was inconceivable. He reflects on the little known phenomena of intergenerational gay adoption and its connection to the civil rights movement.
