New York City Gay Liberation Day, June 27, 1970

Discovered a photograph of me from the book, Stonewall, The Riots That Sparked the Gay Revolution by David Carter. I had heard about this photo but didn't see it until today. I am standing to the right of the Sappho sign. I'm the guy with the beard standing to the left of a Philly activist, Lee Robins, who spotted me on the train to NYC that weekend because I was wearing my Gay Liberation Now button. Photo by Diana Davies via NYPL. Lee and I spent the weekend in NYC, after which I headed back to Boston-Cambridge to my conscientious objector alternative work service job at Tufts New England Medical Center.
