Description
Group photograph and unbound scrapbook leaves containing clippings, photographs, flyers, letters, writings, personal anecdotes, publicity materials, and printed materials which record, describe and discuss the performances, rehearsals and experiences of the Great American Yankee Freedom Band from August 1978 to December 1979.
Background
Originally founded in 1978 to lead the annual Gay Pride Parade, the Great American Yankee Freedom Band of Los Angeles is an adult community marching band made up solely of volunteers. Its mission is to bring together the diverse communities of Southern California (including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and straight) through education, rehearsal and performance of music and other performing arts-and to provide a rewarding experience for its members. It is the second oldest musical organization of its kind in the world. The group has performed locally, nationally and internationally in concert, at street fairs, and community service organization functions.
