[Gay Activism]

20 Questions About Homosexuality

New York: Gay Activists Alliance, 1973

8vo, pp. 24. Original olive green stiff paper wrappers.

First edition.

The New York-based Gay Activists Alliance was founded in 1969, six months after the Stonewall riots. Single-issue, politically non-aligned, the GAA quickly established itself as one of the most effective and well-organised gay pressure groups in the early years of the Gay Liberation movement.

This pamphlet, answering questions about homosexuality and the gay lifestyle not just for wider society but for those looking to acclimatise to their sexuality in the face of a hostile world, is a wonderful, touching survivor from the Gay Rights movement of the early 1970s. A fine copy, too.
