I put this site together for so many reasons … to preserve a bit of gay American history … to remember and honor my mother and father for their important role in this story and in my life as a gay man … to look back 35 years later and see how much has changed for gay men and women and adolescents in America – and how much has NOT ! … a little bit to show my own pride for the role I played in these events … a little bit to clean out old filing cabinets … and to play a small part in the ongoing debates, struggles, battles, discussions, and dreams of gay Americans to continue to move forward today towards a future of full, and truly equal, participation in the American promise and dream.
