Slide show | Gay American Heroes Foundation/Stonewall Library reception at Winter Party Festival

As part of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force's annual Winter Party Festival, two South Florida groups held a reception Friday at the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens: Gay American Heroes Foundation, which is raising money to build a memorial to GLBT people killed in hate crimes; and the Stonewall Library & Archives presenting "Days Without Sunshine: Anita Bryant's Anti-Gay Crusade."

Here are photos I took at the event:
