1972 Gay Rights Platform

The 1972 Gay Rights Platform

 

In February 1972 the National Coalition of Gay Organizations met at the Armitage Avenue

 

United Methodist Church in Chicago. An invitation had been sent out to 495 homosexual

 

organizations across the U.S. to come and prepare a “gay stance for the 1972 elections.”

 

About 200 individuals from 18 states representing 85 organizations showed up for the two-day

 

event. Conference participants adopted the 1972 Gay Rights Platform, which included 17 federal

 

and state “demands.”

 

For over 30 years it has been the beacon of the homosexual movement in America.

Back in

1972 their demands seemed so outlandish that nobody took them seriously. But gay activists

 

have been extremely focused and relentless in achieving their goals.

 

(Notice the bottom goal on the list.)

 

It gives an interesting perspective. If someone back then had suggested that we would be

 

discussing this subject today and in the position we’re in, it would not only have been considered

 

unbelievable, it truly would have been beyond the ability of the average person to imagine it.

 

DEMANDS:

prohibit discrimination in employment, housing, public accommodations and public

 

services.

homosexuality; and the upgrading to fully honorable all such discharges previously

 

issued, with retroactive benefits.

 

 

3.

8. Federal funding of aid programs of Gay men’s and women’s organizations designed to

 

alleviate the problems encountered by Gay women and men which are engendered by an

prisons and mental institutions because of sexual offense charges relating to victimless

be immediately expunged.

8. Repeal of all legislative provisions that restrict the sex or number of persons entering into

of sex or numbers.

 

“The greatest single victory of the gay movement over the past decade has been to shift the

 

debate from behavior to identity, thus forcing opponents into a position where they can be seen

 

as attacking the civil rights of homosexual citizens.”

 

From “The Homosexualization of America”, by homosexual activist Dennis Altman
