Hey folks. My friend and I are writing a research/opinion paper on the Gay Rights Movement. I've found some good stuff on the internet, but I'd like to get another angle. Anyone know where any good ANTI-gay info on the Gay Rights Movement could be found? I want actual history, not some "Death to queers" propaganda. I wanna see another side, to give me a different perspective. Plus, I want a logical argument from the freaks who tell me I'm a-goin' to hell. If I'm damned, why can they not defend that position, hmm...? Anyway, some help would be nice. So... yeah. Blessed Be, all.

Hiya Amanda!

The very fact that you posted this question is an enigma of sorts. Considering that you are doing a "research paper" it is understandable that you would want to exclude the fanatics htat "codemn to Hell" anyone of GLBTQ perusuasion. So I gather you rule out the Westboro Baptist Church (Rev. Phelp) and many other religious organizations.

As a suggestion, and ONLY a suggestion... perhaps you may want to look into the archives of the American Psychiatric Association (don't have a link handy, sorry)... and explore the reasons behind their decision to remove "homosexuality" from the mental illness category in the early '70's. At least, there should be some scientic info there that is not all "crazy" and mixed up with religion.

Just a suggestion... and good wishes for that paper!

...continued...

I would also recommend a viewing of such great films as "The Times of Harvey Milk" (Doc) and the "Celluoid Closet" as both films have a great deal of history involved!

Their is a book titled "Gay Rights" in the Current Controversy Series that gives both views on gay rights. You may want to go and check it out.
