“Look out, straights. Here comes the Gay Liberation Front, springing up like warts all over the bland face of Amerika…We are the extrusions of your unconscious mind…From the beautiful boys at Cherry Grove to the aging queens in the uptown bars, the taxi-driving dykes to the lesbian fashion models, the hookers (male and female) on 42nd Street, the leather lovers…and the very ordinary very un-lurid gays…we are the sort of people everyone was taught to despise-and now we are shaking off the chains of self-hated and marching on your citadels of repression.”  -Martha Shelley, “Gay is Good” (1969).
