Alan Joyce Pie Face

Forty years ago this October, the public leader of an US lobby group called "Save our Children", Anita Bryant was holding a press conference in Des Moines making the argument against the march of gay rights, such as they were in 1977. 

After speaking in support of employers who were able to fire gay employees for choosing to "flaunt it" in the workplace, Bryant copped a strawberry-rhubarb pie in the face from gay activist Thom Higgins.
