I'm not sure if I'm elated to find this or horrified. But one thing is clear: the more things change and we humans evolve for the better, the more they stay the same and we prove to be just animals without heart or souls.

If someone could enter a time machine, go back to 1952-'54 yet keep full awareness of life in 2008, would the people in these articles believe that the Stonewall revolt would happen? Would Bayard Rustin believe that hundreds of out BLK SGL men would participate in the Million Man March in '95 and that Cleo Manago of BMX would speak at the Millions More March in '05? Would they be dis-couraged at how long it would take or inspired that the Obama campaign would happen in 56 years?

this is a great look at our past. you would never have known that black magazines actually did articles on homosexuality and balls back then. i have had conversations with my mom, who is now 85. she laughs when she sees black folk try and diss black lgb&t folk because growing up in Harlem, she says they all partied together and had a blast. 125th street was party central, for black folks, even before the 50's. my mom says that he ball scene and the transgirls were all over, back in the day. eventhough some where still in the closet, many were out and proud, just as we are today.

Wow. Thanks man. That is hot info.

It is interesting to now know who the author was identifying as being homosexual. Most of that information has been a part of African American gay history for a long time.
