Trivia

The sign on the red building, which read "Welcome To GAA'S Firehouse," was over the entrance of an actual old firehouse, in the Soho neighborhood in Manhattan. This was where the Gay Activists Alliance met from 1971 to 1974. The Firehouse was destroyed by arson in 1974. See more »

In December of 1974, gay men and women went to bed sick, and woke up the next day instantly cured.
25 July 2010 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

Things started changing dramatically after Stonewall. The American Psychiatric Association declared that being gay was not a sickness, the women's movement included a lot of lesbians who refused to back down, and gay men and women started protesting with a commemoration of the Stonewall riots.

The march continued as gays and lesbians had churches to attend, and politicians that were just like them. There was a backlash, of course, as people like Anita Bryant led a charge against gays and lesbians.

Homosexuality may no longer be a mental illness, but with Bryant, Ronald Reagan, and Jerry Falwell in the public limelight, it became a sin. This at the time that AIDS came on the scene.

A fascinating look at the ups and downs of the movement.
