Fascinating, Tyler Albertario! So the man who coined “Gay Pride” effectively removed himself from the movement due to his misogyny and abrasiveness?


Jeffry J. Iovannone, here’s some research you may find interesting. I don’t don’t know how much you might know about this story already. Tyler, Jeffry is an an historian of the early movement and is writing a book that touches on some of this.

The two of you might want to connect!
