St. Pat's For All 2011 Parade - Remembering Robert Rygor

St. Pat's For All 2011 Parade - Remembering Robert Rygor

Robert Rygor was a gay man from New York City. He dedicated his life for LGBT equality, dignity, and pride. He was also a tireless advocate of safe sex, and, as a member of ACT-UP, he was an advocate on behalf of AIDS patients. Beginning in 1978, Robert also fought for LGBT inclusion in the St. Patrick's Day Parade that makes it way down Fifth Avenue.


In this video, I spoke with Brendan Fay following the St. Pat's For All 2011 parade in Woodside, Queens. Mr. Fay shared some memories of Mr. Rygor.
