Description Bayard Rustin was the organizer of the March on Washington and one of the leaders of the civil rights movement. In the 1980s Bayard adopted his younger boyfriend Walter Naegle to obtain the legal protections of marriage.

He reflects on the little known phenomena of intergenerational gay adoption and its connection to the civil rights movement.

    ive made a "it gets better" video over on my channel, but its important that everyone understands how precious their life is and how beautiful you ALL are. everyone is different in many ways, no two people exactly the same when it comes down to their thoughts. but life is worth living, and no matter what it is important for people to realise that you can write your own chapter in your book, dont let other people write it! life is what YOU make of it! :)

    Well, since African American won't claim Bayard, let Gay American do because he deserves so much more recognition.
