    This is from a great film A Very Natural Thing released in 1974. The march footage is authentic and was filmed documentary-style to capture the spirit of the 70s gay rights movement and to bookend the story of the protagonist.

    Pride has definitely changed and been skewed a great deal by the commercial, co-opting nature of capitalism and mainstreaming of some elements of gay culture.

    It is great to see the footage, and I hope that it spurns activists to continue this long fight!

    Thanks for posting this!
