First Midwest Gay Pride Conference

Midwest Gay Pride Conference, April 19-21, 1974

Midwest Gay Pride Conference, April, 1974

This conference was held spring of 1974. My memories had rusted again about the conferences. I thought the first conference was held during the 1974-75 school year, but April 19, 1974 definitely was a Friday and the conference ran Friday to Monday; I was wrong.
