If you listened to drag queens, you’d think that them and Valerie Solanis were the only ones that ever did anything after Stonewall . You know who they’re trying to erase? GAY HIPPIES.
Yes, it’s true! Once upon a time, in places that weren’t even San Francisco, gay hippies ruled the revolutionary world. They wore no clothes and formed “liberation fronts,” but later decamping to semi-utopian, semi-erect communities in Tennessee (which made it easier for drag queens to erase them from the history books). Which is too bad, because unlike drag queens and HRC members, they did not get lipstick on your dick or make you buy them a drink of cocaine.
Also, a lot of them were highly fuckable.
