My god, I grew up during this and did not really understand what I was seeing when I got to see it. Luckily because of a queer high school friend I went to clubs that he and his partner explained the landscape. In those years, 1969, transgender and gay were sometimes mixed and we were all expanding the concept of counterculture diversity, as we would call it now. I wish I could have studied it more while it was happening. Now I see it as the basis of my respect for diversity.
