As a straight person, this side of history has not been exposed to me, though I've always wondered. What was gay culture like before Stonewall? Did people have the audacity to pair in public? Did they go to gay bars? Did they dress in drag in public? After looking at these pictures, I can surely say "yes". Obviously gays have been around forever, I just wondered what the world was like for them before it became socially acceptable. Mind you, in many places (and here as well in many ways), it still is unacceptable.
Considering the climate of hatred going on in the western world at the time, I am both surprised and delighted to see that people still pushed the envelope to find self-acceptance and fight to love who they wanted to.
Anyways, I'm rambling.....ENJOY THIS WONDERFUL FIND!!!
