They were specifically going after me. They cornered me against the wall and clubbed me on punishing naked gay men head.
I had twenty stitches down my head. They carted me off. The last thing people saw was me gay smoking fetish video a blood-soaked shirt down to my waist. They dumped me on the back floor of the police car, took me to St.
And then there were three cordons of police around the hospital. They weren't letting out any information, so there was a big rally with ten thousand nuns and priests gay boys sucking their own dicks were in Selma that gsy over to Montgomery.
And minutes before I was clubbed down, I saw Jim Forman, who was smart, wearing a helmet. I saw his helmet go flying. Someone hit his head hard enough so that the helmet just went flying right in front of my face. We hope he's O. We suspect he might be dead. In the hospital, the doctors wanted to throw me out, but there was a male nurse there from Long Beach, California. I don't know his name, but he was gay and he held my hand. And when the doctors weren't looking, he gave me a list of media that were trying to call me.
And he wheeled me on a gurney out to the hallway, and I made all these media calls, told my frabk I'm alive. They had a camera crew in the living room at the time. Well anyway, the next day we confronted Sheriff Butler in Montgomery.
Croslin, who was circuit solicitor, Sheriff Butler, Al Lingo, head of the state troopers, and the members of the sheriff's volunteer posse, which is the kzmeny as White Citizens Council or K. It was a group athiesg vigilantes on horseback with not just weapons but things like chains and canes and things.
Well anyway, he accused me of going after him with a knife and brought frank kameny gay athiest pair of pants with a slice down it and said we have videotapes. Then he apologized and we got a statement feank of him which frank kameny gay athiest drafted by King and myself. And King said, "This is the very first time a southern sheriff had apologized for injuring a civil rights frank kameny gay athiest.
Well anyway, to move on iameny quickly, in Norman Mailer wrote extensively about the armies of the night, the groups that went after the Pentagon building. Our idea was that we were going to jameny hands around frank kameny gay athiest Pentagon building and frank kameny gay athiest it to levitate.
Real housewives of atlanta gay men it levitated even one inch off the ground, this would signal the beginning of the Aquarian Age. But we frnk get all the way around 'cause you have Fort Hood on the back side of the Pentagon building. So instead we took frank kameny gay athiest the police barricades and made big bonfires all around the Pentagon kament.
You could see the Capitol dome in the distance and the Washington Monument across the river in the distance and all this smoke from these bonfires. And it looked like the War frank kameny gay athiest It looked like Washington under siege. Five of us Philadelphians were the only people that actually made it inside the Pentagon building. We burst through one of the doors through a crack in the ring of soldiers that they had protecting the building.
And inside the corridors were all lined with troops. And so we left very quickly. That was '66, ' A notice showed up, a leaflet showed up, signed by the Americong that, in protest of the horrors of using napalm on humans, there was going to be a demonstration in front of the library canada gay immigration marriage Penn.
An innocent dog frank kameny gay athiest be burned with napalm, showing what a awful thing napalm was, O. So, of course, the mayor, the police chief, everybody said whoever was perpetrating this would spend a long time in jail, etcetera. The day showed up and at noontime there were four ambulances from four different veterinary schools there.
People, as a lark, brought their pet dogs. There were a lot of dogs. There were people. It was the largest antiwar demonstration in the history frank kameny gay athiest the University of Pennsylvania. I had four friends frank kameny gay athiest mine. I had a printing press in my basement frank kameny gay athiest I was a publisher at the time. So out of the crowd, leaflets showed up. And I handed out these leaflets, Americong, you know, was a fiction.
There was no group. But the leaflets showed up at this big rally and it said, "Congratulations, you've saved the life of an innocent dog. How about the hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese that have been burned alive? What are you going to do about it? I was also told by Gaylord Harnwell at the time that I was persona non grata on campus because I had blocked the door of the Dow Chemical Company recruiter, who was recruiting people to develop these weapons.
I blocked his door and I was told I was persona non grata on campus. And Daily Pennsylvanian published the letter on the front page of the next day and he withdrew it on advice of his lawyers. And then a frank kameny gay athiest years later, I published, under the name Dirty Linen Corporation, these Fuck the Draft posters with a guy burning a gay guys post their dick card and it said in huge letters, "Fuck the draft.
I was arrested at home by federal marshals and Secret Service for frank kameny gay athiest U. I had run an ad that said, "Buy five and we'll send a sixth one to the mother of your choice. So I was kept at frank kameny gay athiest FBI headquarters here. They couldn't hold people overnight so they took me in chains down Chestnut Street with four guys watching me, down to the Round House and I was held there.
Anyway, I took these posters to the Democratic Convention in Chicago. And everybody was told to stay away. This was going to be very dangerous. But I went anyway. I rented a car to haul these posters around. And I had a coat and tie on so I could move easily in and out of the hotels and the various delegations and caucus meetings at the convention. But I handed out the posters, of them, at the amphitheater, just minutes before the riot where someone tried to lower the American flag.
People, to protect themselves, took the park benches and made atiest barricade, but a lot of people's heads were bloodied and a lot of that's on film. But then later, you couldn't get over to Grant Park.
I mean, you couldn't get across. You had to go all the way into near Northside and they had blocked the pedestrian bridges into the Loop. So I had a car, so Frank kameny gay athiest was ferrying people back and forth into the Loop. This was on Wednesday. The previous night I was almost hit by a tear gas grenade. Rennie Davis was hit frank kameny gay athiest had his skull fractured.
We had a big wooden cross and we were doing a religious ceremony on the Tuesday night. Wednesday night I was at hot black white gay sex trailer Conrad Hilton. It was just very crowded. Conrad Hilton Hotel was surrounded by machine guns on tripods.
I don't know who they were going to kill, but they had these jeeps that were outfitted with barbed wire frameworks. And they were crowd movers. They would line up jeeps kament it would be like a moving barbed wire fence. First they went after the camera crews of the Frank kameny gay athiest.
They were standing on the tops frank kameny gay athiest the vans. And they would knock the camera equipment down and club the camera crews. They also went after kakeny. They broke through the plate glass window at the corner bar at Conrad Hilton. They were chasing people inside the Conrad Hilton Hotel.
In the meantime, someone must have dribbled utiric acid frak the carpets in the Conrad Hilton Hotel. So we couldn't eat in any of the restaurants. They were stink bombs, basically.
And it smelled terrible. People would walk in the hotel and look at the bottoms of their shoes. But police sthiest people up the elevators, up to, well, the various floors of the hotel.
So the Democratic Convention in Chicago was really a nightmare. It changed the course of that election. Let's see, during this period of time there were a lot of things.
Underground press was having conferences. Rrank described the conference near Milwaukee, where we actually had foxholes, had people armed with weapons, protecting frank kameny gay athiest conference.
We were about to publish a gay paper in Philadelphia, but right frank kameny gay athiest YerostocksI think, was in formation, we had a meeting in my living room. We decided we would wait.
We also decided to wait when Don DeMaio came in from Pittsburgh and had his own project. We weren't into competing with any other community efforts. The underground press kaneny, to me, primarily Plain Dealer. Clip gay video wrestling Free PressI don't remember all the details. Was that Temple people? That was the one that Rizzo then went after. There was a Temple Free Presstoo, but that's separate. I know that Temple Free Pressthey were old vay, old W.
B Dubois Club people, frank kameny gay athiest Jim Quinn, who were doing this. Jim Quinn became a food critic for and restaurant reviewer for Philadelphia Boy free gay latino pic young and later for Washington Post.
And I gave him his first job with Rfank Guide as a restaurant frank kameny gay athiest. Yeah, back in ' Let's see, I'm not sure about Philadelphia Free Press. I have a microfilm of underground newspapers, frank kameny gay athiest not every issue.
In fact, I think you had stories in the Free Press. Or maybe Temple Free Press. One of those papers, it may be Philadelphia Free Naked gay lumberjack pictureshad this double-page spread, maybe six columns, a long story after Martin Luther King's funeral--I was in Atlanta--describing going over Washington.
Washington was all burning. There was a bomb scare. We had to land in Washington. They went through all my luggage on the airplane ramp. We went to Atlanta. Frnak stores, you could see armed guards marching with automatic weapons inside the doorways. I took care of Dexter frank kameny gay athiest Marty Junior--Dexter was seven and Marty Junior was nine at the time--at the King house during the week, just during kaneny week of the funeral, just after the assassination.
And so it described the details of what was happening that week. I'm not sure if that's the article you're referring to. That's not the one I'm thinking of. Were there any other major actions or demonstrations that you were involved with in the '60s before your GLF years.
And then also, as I said, if there's anything else that you want to talk about that I didn't ask about. Currently I'm a franm marijuana activist. I operate kamenu cannabis buyer's club here.
I have maybe forty clients, including not only persons with AIDS wasting syndrome, but three clients with multiple sclerosis, two with reflex ampithetic dystrophy. No available medications help them with their conditions and the marijuana helps rfank well. One person with recent brain surgery that has constant headaches can't sleep and this helps him also. I have about forty clients. But the first smoke-in in Philadelphia was called Alice's unbirthday party. It took place in the park behind Independence Hall.
Athist night before, a number of people, including Ira Old gay white men giving handjobs, were frank kameny gay athiest my place on 27 th Street. We had a pound and a half of marijuana.
We rolled maybe joints. I guess we smoked a little, too. I'm not certain about the date. It was '67 or ' Frank kameny gay athiest probably in the Inquirer archives because we arrived kamny, we distributed frank kameny gay athiest as evenly as we could and as quickly as mike teevee and gay porn could in the crowd.
And the police spotted a professor from Temple University frank kameny gay athiest they arrested him. They didn't arrest anyone else, but twenty-six of us sat down around the police cars so they couldn't move out with him and decorated the police car double cock gay hand job flowers and cigarette papers and things. But that was a very early kind frank kameny gay athiest flower child kind of demonstration, but jameny import for things that would happen later.
I think several hundred people were arrested in Greenwich Village in early May in a medical marijuana march this year. Of course I don't charge anything for marijuana vay I'm very different from any of the cannabis buyer's clubs in California, where they did pass the law. I can't afford marijuana at their prices, but it was harder and harder to get it, so we had to go to European sources for ours, which is donated.
And we've been crank for three and a half years. In frank kameny gay athiest of mass demonstrations, I remember very well the fact that after arhiest sit-ins on Route 40 in Maryland we had a march and a rally in Baltimore, Maryland, along the rowhouse lined streets of Baltimore. And we ended up in a church.
We were all singing gospel and it really set the tone for all the decades afterwards. I mean it was real people in their own neighborhood and it wasn't orchestrated the way you need a million dollar budget to do anything larger than a gathering of a hundred people anymore. And there were many other frank kameny gay athiest demonstrations involving large contingents of gay people in Washington. And we took logs and trash frank kameny gay athiest west hollywood gay pride parade 2018 park benches and moved them down onto the Rock Creek Parkway, the main athhiest into the city.
And we successfully blocked it. When the police went after us, we, we would line up and do line dances. And they had no idea, 'cause it's really hard to kick at people's feet as they're kicking at shoulder kmaeny. But they had these big plastic shields and stuff.
Iameny they certainly saw enough of their police cars destroyed with bricks and things. It was either the White House or the Capitol.
Those were on contiguous days. Capitol building first, then the White House. I'm in the police van with Alden McCain, who died about three years ago. We were both arrested. We were in the back of a police paddywagon on the way to jail from the White House. And they had plastic handcuffs on frank kameny gay athiest behind their dolphins are gay sharks origin. Someone's circulation was cut off and they couldn't get out and I'm pretty frank kameny gay athiest at getting out of stuff like that.
In the van they quickly called me Houdini because I said, "Oh, are you having problems? And Alden, who's sitting next to me and is a long time activist, he runs, usually, the ACT UP media centers at international AIDS conferences, and he says, "You look like you have quite a bit of experience doing that.
Not a whole lot, but it was a pleasant surprise. Unfortunately, Alden died early in ' We floated a wreath in Yokahama Harbor for him. But Alden was there. He says, "Yes, we were arrested that day. Frank kameny gay athiest thousand people arrested. They kept us in JFK Stadium. They had this huge canvas tarp on the field and we also found poles.

Robert Kennedy was assassinated two months later. In the midst of this upheaval it made perfect sense that a frightened America would elect Republican Richard Nixon to the presidency that November.
It was really only a matter of time before gays got angry enough to start fighting back. Frank kameny gay athiest in March ofthe New York Police Department stepped up its periodic raids on gay bars; the June 28 raid on the Stonewall Inn was simply business as usual.
After three nights of unrest women and men began to organize and weeks later the formation of the Gay Liberation Front was announced. The group was a direct, and important, result of the Stonewall riots. But Stonewall was not the end of this national narrative, just a small moment in time.

Is it any surprise that by the middle of there were already more than independent chapters of the Gay Liberation Front across the country?
What was incredible about the Gay Liberation Front, and what is so sorely missing from our gay rights movements now, is that it saw itself as a multi-issue radical movement. It was as concerned with ending wars abroad, fighting racism and securing reproductive freedom for women as it was with fighting homophobia.
Members of the Gay Liberation Front also understood that they needed, pragmatically and philosophically, to work in coalition with other movements. The vision of the Gay Liberation Front linked freedom for gays to the freedom of all other oppressed groups. It is a vision that neither the homophile groups that preceded it nor the gay rights groups that followed understood or embraced. It is a lesson the gay rights movement just might be learning now.
The importance free gay men with huge cocks Stonewall resides not in a sentimental vision of it as a sort of community coming-out story frank kameny gay athiest in its unique place frank kameny gay athiest the panoply of movements, events, riots, demonstrations, political actions, social revolts, bad behaviors, and bursts of anger that defined the second half of the s.

The article is correct in describing the GLF politics as radical, and as linked to other social justice movements of the times, but I believe Bronski is incorrect in suggesting that gay liberation has disappeared and been replaced by something excessively mainstream.

The dreams are smaller now, way smaller… How did the gay movement morph into the Rotary Club in a few decades? A lesbian who has been active since those days wrote: But the question is, short of a revolution supported by the majority of Americans, how could the various groups have realized their vision? We devolved into a scattering of non-profit groups precisely because there was no revolution. My position is that I do not share the very negative and pessimistic evaluation frank kameny gay athiest the changes in gay politics that have taken place in the 40 years since the founding of GLF.
The current movement is much more than the black-tie parties of the Human Rights Frank kameny gay athiest HRC — which I have never attended and have no desire to attend — and does not resemble the Rotary Club. The Rotary Club in my small-town community, by the way, does a lot of very good work and I have some friends who are in it. I am much more inclined to celebrate, not piss and moan about how gay liberation is dead.
If you had asked me the question: As Jonathan Rauch has pointed out, it usually speaks good things about those who want to limit speech because they wish not to ostracize minorities. Unfortunately, emphasizing care and kindness do not a good policy make. We live in a time where the concept of free speech has suffered a moral contamination because of who is most vocal in its defense and through ideas which are emerging through subsections of academia.
Both these prongs must be countered. Free speech and the norms associated with it in gay sites in hunterdon county nj rare and nascent form are accomplishments we should not give up so easily. I must have studied in a university that was never tainted by this. Frank kameny gay athiest against Free Speech? That said, my history lecturers put on such a poor lecture about postmodernism, I suspect it was deliberately bad to put us off it.
So they probably deliberately avoided this anti-Free Speech nonsense as well. Thank goodness for that. If people would pay attention and not get frank kameny gay athiest by talking points the answer would be obvious.
It became a right wing concept when right-wingers co-opted it to defend any absurd idea they have and liberals bought the lie.
It also became right wing when liberals who are absolutists about having debates with even alt-right nazis, like Richard Spencer, about questions of genocide refuse to have any discussion about the limits of free speech. And one last reason that it has become right wing is that providing platforms for people like Richard Spencer only helps to give power to alt-right speech while it hinders the speech of minorities.
Providing people like Spencer a platform gives them more political power and legitimacy in public discourse and cause minorities to feel fearful of speaking and ousts minorities from public discourse.
Attitudes toward free speech were one of the many points of contention between Sanders and Clinton supporters in While the Sanders group is a mixed bag, they seem to frank kameny gay athiest toward toronto gay porn industry 60ss left mix of social democratic views on economics and strong civil libertarianism.
The politics here reflects the same odd alliance of university administrators and campus protesters that coalesce around a top-down, managerial vision of protection of marginalized groups. That approach is just as ideological as anything on the political fringes and just as bound to fail. European countries are cited as some kind of success stories, when they are anything but. On the other hand, such laws are notoriously abused — by Islamist groups seeking to shut up their critics, and by frank kameny gay athiest governments like gay men sex picture galleries of Poland, that uses its laws on Holocaust denial to shut up writers who raise questions about Polish collaborationism during Nazi occupation.
This combination of not helping stop actual fascism while being abused against legitimate political speech should call the entire idea of hate speech law into question. The Pew survey question is biased in that it picks the one topic where Millennials really are most likely to pick some other value over frank kameny gay athiest free speech.
