Gay Liberation

Political Rhetoric (Extremism), 1969

The original plan for everything you’re wondering the social origin of.

After the Stonewall Riots in New York in 1969, a militant wing of protestors formed the Gay Liberation Front to ally with _Women’s Liberation_ — including Peter Tatchell — which spread to Montreal and London the next year. Although it only lasted until 1974, the same people kept campaigning under the banner of “OutRage!”. In 1971, the GLF published its manifesto, which is frankly insane, obviously authored by radical feminist extremists, and terrifying by any standard — it became the political blueprint of the next 40 years.
