labladeLos Angeles Blade | Troy Masters - Alexei Romanoff, 81, knows a thing or two about Resistance. In fact, you could say he is in some sense a founding father of LGBT resistance in Los Angeles, having helped sparked one of the earliest large scale demonstrations in American history against homophobic injustice.

And that’s just one good reason Romanoff will lead the ResistMarch as 2017’s LA Pride Grand Marshal.

Los Angeles in the late 1960s, like much of America, was a hotbed of resistance of every kind: the women’s movement, the hippie movement, the antiwar movement and, yes, even a nascent movement for LGBT rights, all combined here to fuel the winds of change.
