Message:I'm a dutch man, just browsing and found your page. I'm impressed, because at first I didn't think much of it. Calvinistic as I am. Strancely at the moment I read about the boy who commited suicide the music I played was 'To What You Said' by Whithman/Bernstein. Having lost two of my best friends because of suicide made me remember them. Not that I was forgotten them, but it came out of the blue. THANKS. Ferry

Message:Are you gay??HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
Look something... if you are gay... fine
But what the fuck do you want now from us??
Come and enjoy your stupid homepage?
Don t you have anything else to do apart from showing that you are a sick gay???
Dont you know that the internet services should be used for other manners?
You should really be ashamed...

Andrej Comment:
In a first time I thought to erase this entry... but then I thought better to leave it as it is: so everybody can see who is sick and has to be ashamed... And his e-mail and site doesn't even exist...

Message:Your site is very sexy... but not as sexy as you! Don't be an age-ist, or give in to them. I'm 50 and my last lover--of 24 years--died at 82. And he was foolin' around with teenagers during the week before he died, unexpectedly of cancer, 'cause young neigborhood guys knew they could have a good time with Frank. He was a local legend.
I am a founding member of the original Gay Activists Alliance of New York City (then using the nom-de-gai of "Gary Dutton"). The Lambda symbol was proposed in Jan. 1970 by graphic artist Tommy Doerr as the GAA logo, first for serindipity, secondly for our special gay "wavelength", and thirdly as an ancestor of the letter "L" for Lesbian.
GAA was a militant, one-issue group dedicated to equality of lesbians and gay men as guarranteed by U.S. law. That's why the lambda is a militant symbol. We took to the streets & did something about it. Formed on 12/21/69, by February of 1970 GAA was 1) demonstrating at City Hall, 2) on national TV (the DICK CAVET SHOW), 3) circulating petitions aimed at local politicians, and 4) being trashed in Nixon's White House (as "...long-haired, card-carrying, pinko fags...")...all major accomplishments back then.
When GAA was organized, Lesbians in NYC were very distrustful of gay men (the Gay Liberation Front, our predecessor group, did not value women as thinkers or do-ers; it cast them in sex stereotyped roles serving men, etc.). GAA had only one gay woman as a founding member out of 13 founders. That's how the lambda got its reputation as a "male" sysmbol. GAA responded by an outreach program, not just to lesbians but to gay people of all varieties and ethnic groups. GAA provided meeting space and support for t ese groups. Later GAA's lesbian committee formed a new group called Lesbian Feminist Liberation. They did not use the lambda 'cause they wanted to establish a separate identity as a group and because they wanted to promote the joined-female symbols to counter lesbian invisibility. After meeting for months in GAA's Firehouse (NYC's first Gay Community Center) LFL moved into their own firehouse. Funny, but NYC firefighters were among our most rabid opponents...yet new gay groups took over abandoned fire stations as soon as they became vacant.
The 1974 Scottish conference did not "accept" the lambda (sounds like it was forced on them!). They chose to use the lambda in recognition of the great strides GAA had accomplished in so short a time. At first, GAA was flattered but hesitant to put its logo in the public domain for all gay and lesbian groups to use, since some of these groups were major detractors of GAA and other "lesbian and gay" groups, quite frankly, were either not effective or were blatantly anti-gay or anti-lesbian in form and practice. But the deed was done and GAA lived with it.
If anyone would like other info on the "early days", please e-mail me. I get on the net infrequently, but will answer all.

Message:andrej, I really enjoyed your site. it is nicely layed out and easy to find all the wonderful pages you have. You sound like a person that loves life.. I like that, but then you are italian, as I am. I particulary liked your newspaper, and topic on homosexuality, and porn. I applied for FP in WeHo and have aome pictures, that I consider to be art, but are partial nudes... let me now what you think.. I really do not want to remove them, they are tasteful.

Message:I rather enjoyed your story. It's not crude pornography or likely not porn at all. This is probably not the place for it, but there is no need to condense it so much. More description would fill it out more - at least to my liking. I'll be reading more of your work as I find it.
