A group of us are marching together as a contingent to commemorate the 1977 and 1978 parades and their influence within our community and impact on public opinion against Anita Bryant and State Senator John Briggs.

We are asking people who worked on these early parades and activists that worked on resisting Bryant and Briggs in 1977/78 to be a part of our contingent on Sunday June 25th, 2017. We are a marching contingent, participants need to be able to walk or use a scooter/wheelchair.
