1971 Tape: Gay Activists Alliance,
Arthur Evans Zap NYC Marriage Bureau

This video was created by longtime gay rights advocate Randy Wicker, who was at the Stonewall Riots and still lives in New York City. Frankly, I had goosebumps watching and listening to Arthur Evans and other members of the Gay Activists Alliance, as they took over the NYC marriage bureau in 1971.

Previous posts related to Arthur's passing are here and here.

Dig Arthur's hippie bear garb and hair! Tune in the chants of "Gay Power!" Groove to the activists parading around the office! Turn on to homo history unfolding in glorious black and white!

Oh, the power of the zap:
