PRESERVING GAY HISTORY

August 29, 2012
To the Editor:
I definitely agree that gay history and its legacy should be preserved, recognized, and institutionalized (“Spring Street Gay History Site Denied Landmark Status,” by Duncan Osborne, Aug. 29-Sep. 11). I signed the petition to have the Stonewall Inn bar on Christopher Street become a state and federal landmark. At 71 and as one of the oldest survivors of the 1969 Stonewall raid, I am compelled to be a component in the preservation and legacy of the gay rights movement. Having written one book that includes the Gay Straight Alliance and the Stonewall Democrats of New York, of which I am a member, I am currently writing another that will include all known LGBT groups.
