Gay History - Getting It Right

Here is what I suspect will be the first of a series. QNY friend, Frantz G. Hall (host of Q-Talk—a lively variety show) has produced a fine video that makes the important point that gay people did not occur as some sudden mutation in the 1970s but that we have been part of the history of humanity since day one. The problem is that history has been often written by those who would ignore or deny us appropriate recognition. I think this video ought to be circulated in mixed groups and in the heartland. We in the gay"bubble" may take for granted its premise but most of the country does not.

  1. Thanks for the great posting and information. The country still discards too many young glbtq onto the streets. I could have said "parents", "communities", "churches", etc. The process of shunning is not in the past, but too real for many kids. This type of education is very much appreciated. Thank You
