Gay Liberation Front members sought for reunion event

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Gay Liberation Front, which was born out of the historic riots that occurred in June 1969 outside the gay Stonewall Inn bar in New York City.

As such, reunions of GLF members are being planned in both San Francisco and New York to celebrate the anniversary. The plans include possible contingents in both cities Pride parades at the end of June.

The planning group already has reached out to 100 former members of the radical gay group but is seeking other people who wish to help organize reunions in cities across the country and throughout the globe.

Anyone interested in helping plan the events should contact Nikos Diaman, who lives in San Francisco, at nadiaman@aol.com.

Diaman maintains a Web site about GLF that includes a list of the group’s pioneers as well as photos, history, memorial listing, and updates. The site can be found at www.angelfire.com/on2/glf2000.
