    Abstract: Marc Geller black and white photographic prints of LGBT protests, people, and events, 1987-1993. The 5"x 7" and 8"x 10" photographs include a series taken of the LGBT community in Russia. The protest photographs predominantly document those occurring San Francisco, including those of ACT UP, but also include the March on Washington in 1987 and 1993. Events include those at gay pride parades and at assorted clubs, including leather events. Portraits include those of Harry Hay (5"x 7"), Kevin Lyons, Becky Slane, Bruce La Bruce, Scott Noren, Barbara Tannenbaum and Eleanore Brooks, Sofia and Lee Crowe, Robin Wilson, Allen Ginsberg, Jerome Caja, Tommy Shearer, and James Broughton. Although the photographs date back to the 1987 March on Washington, most have been labeled with a 1990 or 1991 copyright date.
