A color photographic slide depicting the logo for the National Coalition for Black Lesbians and Gays on the door of their office in Detroit. The letters [N.C.B.L.G.] are printed in a large bold red typeface with white shadows to the left of each. Below the acronym, [RENEE McCOY EXEX. DIRECTOR] is printed in a slightly smaller font without the white shadows. A red rectangle borders the logo. On the left side of the front of the slide's white encasement, [SEP 88W03] is printed in black and the number [6] is printed on the right. The back of the slide's encasement has the words [Ektachrome SLIDE] at the bottom and a blue Kodak logo at the top with [PROCESSED BY KODAK] printed inside it. The back of the encasement is black and is secured with gray rivets instead of black ones.
