Gay Liberation pioneers seek "lost" colleagues
Gay Liberation pioneers seek "lost" colleagues
Former members of the Gay Liberation Front (GLF), the organization that launched the modern Gay rights movement in the wake of the June 1969 Stonewall Rebellion in New York City, are seeking information about "lost" colleagues as they plan reunions in June to mark the 40th anniversary of Stonewall.

The reunions, including possible contingents in Gay Pride parades in New York and San Francisco, are being planned to include former Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered members of GLF chapters throughout the nation and the world.

Approximately 100 people are already connected to the planning group, while among those "lost" or otherwise unreachable are the following:

Mike Boyle, John Brault/Murphy, Kathy Braun, Tom Buckingham, David Elbaz, Mark Ericson, Jesse Fallon, Bob Fauss, Richard Farrell, Marta Ferro, Steve Gavin, Donna Gottshalk, Gerald Hansen, Craig Hoke, Jim Jordan, Bill Katzenberg, Larry Kehoe, Roger Kornhaber, Bernard Lewis, Pat Maxwell, Stephanie Meyers, Nova, Jack Openhym, Barbara Payne, Roberta Rheume, Ana Sánchez, Roni Schnitzer, Charles Shoe, Lin Stephen, Ruben Toro, Kay Van Deurs, Tom White, Ann Wilson, Barry, Dore, Marty from Queens and Liban from Paris.

The current reconnection among GLFers started in the fall of 2007 when an obituary about New York activist and GLF member Bob Kohler was circulated via the internet. GLFer Nikos Diaman already maintained a list with some of the pioneers as well as a website with photos, history, memorial listing and updates - www.angelfire.com/on2/glf2000.

Among those involved in the current effort to expand the network of GLF "alumni" are Nikos Diaman of California, Martha Shelley of Oregon, Bob Bland of Arizona, Tommi Avicolli Mecca of California, Perry Brass of New York, Mark Segal of Pennsylvania, Allen Young of Massachusetts and Roberto Camp of Mexico.

Organizers are interested in hearing from members not already in touch. The pioneering activists, or friends who have information about such individuals, are asked to provide names, GLF chapter location, and all contact information including phone, e-mail and mail address. Information about deceased members is also wanted. The organizers can be contacted by e-mail at nadiaman@aol.com or USPS as follows:

Nikos Diaman, 2950 Van Ness Avenue # 4, San Francisco, CA 94109-1036
