The slogan on this button is a variation on a slogan that appeared on buttons and posters that were distributed during the famous March on Washington for Lesbian, Gay, and Bi Equal Rights and Liberation that took place in Washington, D.C. on April 25, 1993. It is estimated that 1 million people attended the March. Between the 1987 March on Washington and the early 1990s, LGBT people achieved much more mainstream visibility than they had in the past. The LGBT community still faced widespread discrimination, through such policies as Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and rising instances of targeted hate crimes.
