Long Description:
The plaque says, "n 1972, Queens school teacher Jeanne Manford walked alongside her gay son, activist Morty Manford, at the Christopher Street Liberation Day Parade, carrying a sign that read, “Parents of Gays: Unite in Support for Our Children.”

The overwhelming response to that simple act led Jeanne, her husband Jules, and early pioneers of the LGBT equality movement to create a support group for LGBT people, their parents, family, and friends.

The first meeting of that group — now known as PFLAG — took place on this site in March 1973."
