The following are pictures from a very busy week!!!
The Phoenix and Ramada Hotels hosted events for the Pride Grand Marshalls, dignitaries, and media.
NACC, the Queer Cultural Center and BAAITS hosted a party at the new Queer Center that was packed with writers and community leaders– including Chrystos and Assemblyman Mark Leno– with guests from as far away as Toronto, Oklahoma, Alaska, Washington, etc…
NACC hosted a party for 50 of Randy’s family and friends at Andrew Brother Elk’s house on Pink Saturday.  Some guests slept over and got up at 6:00 am to get down to the parade and festival grounds…
After all the hullabaloo, the parade finally arrives.  Over 1 million people lined the parade route…
A wrap up celebration inside City Hall as TLC and Deborah Cox entertained the crowds outside….
Remembrance of parades past (circa early 1990s).  That’s Randy on the left pushing the wheelchair…
A Diva in the making.  Randy in his younger days striking a pose…
NACC would like to thank all the photographers and media people who contributed to this page, and who have given the American Indian community so much love and understanding during Pride 2005.  It was the fitting end to a very memorable year!
Remember, if you have any archival pictures of Randy, you can send them to us at jjwnacc@yahoo.com and we will post them.  We reserve the right to post only those that highlight Randy’s work over the past 30 years, including the founding of Gay American Indians, the Indian Center of All Nations, the Native American Cultural Center, etc…
