Dignity/Boston at Pride 1978

Title

Dignity/Boston at Pride 1978

Subject

Dignity/Boston

Description

Dignity/Boston was formed in the first waves of the Gay Liberation movement that followed the Stonewall Riots, and has been providing a home for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) Catholics, their friends and supporters since 1972. Dignity/Boston was formed to unite these people and provide an instrument through which the voices of GLBT Catholics may be heard by the Church and by society. In this photograph, members of the Dignity/Boston are shown marching with signs in the 1978 Gay Pride March. Some of the signs read: "Dignity Boston, Be not afraid, I go before you." and "We are Priests," "We are nuns," and "We are police."
