Bi Folk Marching in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Boston

Bisexual Army Veteran Cliff Arnesen shared this intriguing photograph of the early days of marching in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in South Boston.
Arneson, like many of the activists in the photo who are now gone, worked to get the LGBT groups accepted in the Boston parade. This year, they will celebrate the 23rd anniversary of the G&L Irish Group of Boston and their fight for inclusion in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in South Boston.
Cliff writes:
March 15, 1992: Under a court order issued by   Federal Judge, Harry Zobel to the Gay, Lesbian, Irish Bisexual organization (GLIB), 25 members marched a five mile route under heavy police protection, through an anti-gay, hate filled crowd of a more than a half million people in Boston’s infamous St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
The date was also “Evacuation Day,” when the British were driven out of Boston by Gen. George Washington’s Continental Army.
