Hello Rich,

I am creating a social media post about the first Pride being a riot for my work at a local municipal political party in The Hague, The Netherlands. We want to call attention to inclusion & protection of the queer community at a local level, by looking back at history and acknowledging that the first pride was a riot! I wonder if we could use this photo for our social media post, and if so, how to refer to the rights being reserved.

I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards,

Rosa de Nooijer

Hello Rich, my name is Kon Lueth and I am a production assistant with CNN's Documentary Unit. We are currently working on a project about The History of Drag for an episode of The Whole Story with Anderson Cooper. We touch on Marsha P Johnson and Sylvia Rivera in our documentary and would love to showcase how monumental founding STAR was, being that it was such an early trans rights organization.

We are hoping you could secure your permission to use the photo that shows members of "Street Tranvestites Action Revolutionaries marching". Our terms would allow for the photo's use within the documentary in perpetuity across all media worldwide, including streaming and distribution of the documentary to CNN’s affiliates. Please let me know if this language you are comfortable with.

Thank you very much for the time and hope we can reach an agreement!

Thanks much,

Kon
