Washington DC portion of the trip (4/27-5/1)
We went on the trip to attent the Millenium March on Washington for Lesbian/;Gay Rights. We stayed with and played with Glynis and Susan.
We visited the Holocost Museum one morning. It was an incredibly emotional and difficult experience, but one I'm glad I had. We also visited the White House.
We attended a Gala Dinner event, hosted by Rita Moreno and Charles Nelson Riley. What a party! Here is the great dessert they served: white chocolate mousse encrusted in crushed pistachios, with raspberries on top and at the end of the jellied rainbow, topped off with a stick of white chocolate. Yum, yum! This was the stage for the show at the Gala Dinner, which was a tribute to Jerry Herman. We got to see great performers of all kinds.
At the FDR memorial. Eleanor also had her place there.
Melissa Etheridge was one of those at the beginning of the March. Ellen DeGeneres and Anne Heche were also at the front.
President Clinton made a special speech, on tape. So did Vice President Gore.
Martina made a live appearance and urged us all to go back to our old neighborhoods and schools and come out. LOTS of people on the mall for the rally afterwards.
Hangin' out before the March... ...and crashed out on the Mall afterwards.
