41 years ago today, homophobe Anita Bryant got pied on live TV by a gay activist.

OOOPS.   It was 41 years from 2 days ago, but still.

I was living in Fort Lauderdale then and still rather young (but with ideas, lol).

Florida was Bryant's home base and the coverage of her "Save Our Children" repeal crusade was daily, front-page news here, both pre-pie and post-pie.  The notorious (glorious?) pastry was thrown by gay rights activist Tom Higgins.

Some years later, my first "real guy" approached me on our famous beach and led with a discussion about Anita's pie (still a source of local gay pride and tourist curiosity).  Then he put a dab of zinc oxide cream on my nose to keep it from burning.  Then we went to see his accommodations at the Marlin Beach Hotel.  And, then.

Thanks for the historical note and the opportunity to overshare.    Crazy?

It was such a joy to watch. I was 14 then - and had just realized what was what. Did not understand the full implications of what it meant at that time, but came to appreciate them as I grew older.
