National Gay Mobilizing Committee plans march on Washington

A new coalition, the National Gay Mobilizing Committee l or A March On Washington, is beginning to grow in some centers of the eastern and midwestern United States. The NGMC is made up of gay people dedicated to the mobilization of masses of people for demonstrations calling for the repeal of all sodomy and solicitation laws and full civil rights for Gays. NGMC is seeking nationwide endorsements from all gay groups and publications for a national convention to be held in October on the Urbana campus of the University of Illinois to make plans for a march on Washington next spring. Such an effort requires the participation of most or all of the 650 organized gay groups in the country.

Many members of Pittsburgh gay groups are very excited about the convention and proposed march next spring. GAP will be in contact with NGMC and publicize all forthcoming details.
