This weekend's National Equality March was absolutely amazing and the unexpected moments kept piling up. We ran into Glee star Corey Montieth while shopping and the Mayor of DC stopped me in the street to say hello, but one of the most amazing introductions I had came minutes before the beginning of the March. That's when I met Perry Bindelglass at the march's press offices.
Perry, a straight photographer with little knowledge about LGBT politics or history, was told about the march by his mother who had heard about it from the cast of Hair. He showed up that morning and asked for a press pass and on our way out the door he asked if he could tag along with the Bilerico team in exchange for the right to publish some of his photographs.
My executive committee member access level allowed me to sneak Perry backstage for some of the most stunning photos from the march. I've highlighted five of my favorites, but at the end there's a slideshow with over a hundred more you won't want to miss. Feel free to reprint any of the pictures you'd like as long as you use the photo credit.
