Attitudes to gays in 1963 - A NY Times time capsule

Recommended Posts

Found a link to this browsing reddit today. It's an article from 1963 about the concerns over growing open homsexuality in NYC.

The report seems even handed for its time, giving a wide range o voices, including gays themselves, but it also seems trapped in assumptions about homosexuality, like the roots of homosexuality lying in 'disturbed family relationships' and gays being targets for crime because the bring it on themselves etc.


Worth checking out for a sense of history and an appreciation of how far we've come.
