This photograph was taken in Lafayette Park in Washington, D.C. during the nascent period of the gay rights movement. Protesters dyed the waters of the fountain red as a protest against government indifference to the AIDS crisis. The red was meant to symbolize the blood of those who had died needlessly. Does this remind anybody of what we are living through today?
