Recently, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Center in New York profiled GLYNY Again in its monthly video features program, Out at the Center. That’s the alumni group for Gay and Lesbian Youth of New York, America’s first-ever gay youth group, of which I was an active member from 1986 through 1990.
In this video (subscribers can click on the title of this entry to view it), some of the people with whom I shared the best part of my teen years explain what GLYNY was, how we all found each other again, and why we started the alumni group. My friend, Peter, says in the video his body clock felt programmed for him to head for the Center every Saturday at three o’clock for a GLYNY meeting. For those four years, I felt exactly the same way.
Thanks to fellow alumnus Mark Horn for cluing me into this clip via his blogsite, Another Queer Jewish Buddhist.
