8. Gay Rights Movement
The Gay Rights Movement, 1951-1976, Mattachine Society of New York, 24 reels, HC 6120 USA, located in microfilm reading room
The organizational papers of The Mattachine Society reflect the vigorous debate that took place among its members from the time of its foundation in 1950. The first major gay organization in the United States, the Society sponsored discussion groups, encouraged support for civil rights and opposed police entrapment for sexual acts. The Society’s New York chapter, founded in 1955, became the largest gay rights group in the U.S. From 1965 onwards, it fought to establish the civil rights of gays, defended men arrested on morals charges and protested against the continual police practice of harassing people in gay bars. These papers offer a poignant portrayal of the gay rights movement, through correspondence with gay men and lesbians throughout the United States, as well as the minutes of meetings, memoranda and ephemera.
