Boston’s GFL’s 10-Point Demands to the Democratic Convention, 1972

Boston GLF’s 10-Point Demands Presented to the Democratic National Convention in Miami Beach, July 1972.  Found in “Biographies, Shively, Charles,” Cambridge Subject Files, 1817-Present.

Boston’s Gay Liberation Front (GLF) asked the above 10 demands be incorporated into the 1972 Democratic Party Platform.  The party didn’t respond to what must have been a radical request.  In fact the platform didn’t include anything on gay rights.  The only point that Boston GLF and the Democratic Party Platform agreed on was ending the war in Vietnam.  You can read the official platform, adopted on July 10, 1972, here.
