Not much information is available for the clip below. But one sign in the parade reads “Adolph Hitler is Alive and Well in Florida” which is probably about Anita Bryant. Bryant’s anti-gay “Save Our Children Campaign” began in 1977 so I think it’s safe to date it as 1977 or 1978.
As you can see in the clip. Shirtless guys, drag queens, floats, and performers in Central Park. Not a far cry from today’s PRIDE.
Pornographer Larry Flynt announced Monday that he would pay up to $1 million for video or audio recordings of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump engaged in illegal behavior or acting in a sexually demeaning manner toward women.
“I have always celebrated women. Women in all shapes and sizes,” the publisher of Hustler magazine said in a statement. “To treat a woman like Mr. Trump himself has is both disappointing and unbelievable, especially coming from someone who wants to be our president.” Flynt has also come under fire for exploiting and degrading women through his magazine and online site, which carry explicit pictures of naked women.
Flynt, a Democrat, has a history of offering to pay for evidence of politicians’ misdeeds. During the impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton, Flynt made such an offer and received information about extramarital affairs from Rep. Bob Livingston. The Louisiana Republican, then slated to be the next House Speaker, responded by resigning from Congress.
Well, at least he’s not offering a million dollars for a nude photo of Donald Trump.
Flynt has created a website for the offer so start digging through those boxes in the garage! I’m sure there are many out there.
