Bayard Rustin, the Gay Man Behind MLK Jr. & the 1963 March on Washingto‪n‬ Feast of Fun: Gay Talk Show

    • Comedy Interviews

Today we salute one of the leaders of the Civil Rights movement, a fabulous gay black man named Bayard Rustin- the chief organizer of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Sadly, Rustin is largely ignored in the history of equality in this country because of his sexuality, so today we also remember the importance of his influence on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his desire for non-violent protest.
