Statement: "I grew up on a Minnesota farm and went to the University of Minnesota. Later I lived in New York City, where I was a shiftworker at Harper's Bazaar. I then became involved in the peace movement and Lower East Side community organizing. I cruised Christopher Street, but only came out when I moved to California and became involved in gay liberation and the publishing of Gay Sunshine (1969-1971). I am now a San Francisco cab driver/retired radical looking for something (someone?) new."
Statement: "I am the author of the recently published Homosexual/Oppression and Liberation (New York: Outerbridge & Lazard, 1971). A native Australian, I teach American Politics at the University of Sydney."
Statement: "Biographies are part and parcel of our oppression. To write one would fuck over my mind and life. It would have nothing to do with who I am and where I'm actually at right now. There can be some value in recovering one's past in order to understand it, and then surpass it an move beyond it, but generally nostalgia is a bad trip."
Statement: "I was born in San Francisco and at one time was editor of the Daily Californian (University of California, Berkeley). I later became an important activist in the early gay liberation movement in San Francisco and Berkeley and was one of the editors of Gay Sunshine (1969-1971). I have recently returned from Israel where I spent some time living on a kibbutz. Now that I'm back in San Francisco, I an wondering 'What happens next?'".
Statement: "I was born in Savannah, Georgia, where I came out at sixteen. After a year at the University of Georgia, I realized that southern society was a vicious, conscious plot against women, blacks and gay men. I came to New York City, where I joined the Gay Liberation Front in 1969. I believe that the gay liberation struggle means being able to express the full range of my feelings and learning consciously not to oppress myself or others. It also means learning to give up male privileges in a very sexist society."
Statement: "I was born in St. Louis, Missouri, and am the author of Naked Lunch, Nova Express, and other books. I now live in London."
Statement: "I am a member of New York City's Gay Revolutionary party and one of the editors of its magazine, Ecstasy."

Statement: "I was born a human sensualist in South Glen Falls, New York, in 1945 and turned out faggot (the only way for males to be. To struggle and survive = faggotry). I was one of many who experienced the Gay Liberation Front in New York City as it was, and who lived to tell about it. I wrote GLF (the movement's movement) and self in Gay Power, The East Village Other, Gay Sunshine, Come Out, and I now publish Faggots and Faggotry, an anarchist mimeo-paper directed towards men."

Statement: "I grew up on a chicken farm in South Jersey, then studies linguistics at the University of Chicago. I was active in GI organizing in the South and in the student radical movement when gay liberation tarted. After several months of non-stop faggotry, I decided to go to Cuba with the Venceremos Brigade and I was in the first Venceremos Brigade gay caucus. Now I'm active on the Chicago Gay People's Legal Committee and I hope some day to practice law in a red dress."
Statement: "I am one of the founders of the Black Panther Party."
Statement: "I am a New Yorker who spent many years in Europe and Morocco. I now live in San Francisco, where I edit my poetry magazine Bastard Angel. Gay liberation and human liberation are the same thing."
