Chicago Anti-Anita Protest Photos

I regularly follow eBay listings, and a dealer recently had for sale negatives
from newspaper coverage of the Chicago protests against Anita Bryant.
As the listings displayed the actual photos, I grabbed the images for a number of them.
Some of them are from a protest on June 7, 1977, some from her June 14, 1977,
appearance at the Medinah Temple, and some are from a November 29, 1977
appearance at the Conrad Hilton hotel, singing for the 4H. A few are also of that
year's Gay Pride Parade.
