[I replied with the following .... what are your thoughts of my idea my LJ friends:]

I have been thinking of a idea.

Why not carry placards (signs usually on a poll or stick) reminding them
(HOP, et al ) that the pride march was started by a BISEXUAL WOMAN by
the name of Brenda Howard.

Like "We remember Brenda Howard, bisexual activist and founder of THIS

BTW If you have a copy of the HOP Pride guide, check out page 55 and you
will see the ad that I paid for in memory of Brenda.

I am also thinking of posting this to some of the LJ bi communities.

Feel free to pass my idea around
