Walter Naegle receives Medal of Honor for Bayard Rustin

And Tam O'Shaughnessy receives the Medal of Honor for Sally Ride.

Accepting the medals on behalf of their late partners were Tam O'Shaughnessy (Sally Ride) and Walter Naegle (Bayard Rustin). Both presentations were preceded by the off-stage announcer recounting the contributions made by Ride and Rustin to the history of the LGBT movement.
