Story

Photo #1 shows GCN [Gay Community News] Office Manager Ron Arruda driving the birthday cake in the parade.

Photo #2 shows the cake cutting a little later during the Pride rally on the Common. L-R: unidentified child, Ron Arruda, Jared Goldfine, John Kyper, Ellen B. Davis (with knife), Bernie Toale and Jim Saslow. Ron was my lover at the time and passed these photos on to me, as they were not used in GCN's Pride coverage.
