Gay Pride: Then & Now
early 1970s to 2003, this show will
explore how early activists laid the
foundations for today's GLBT community.
Don Kilhefner, Ph.D.
is the co-founder of the Los Angeles Gay
Community Services Center (1971) and Van
Ness Recovery House, the first
residential alcoholism and drug treatment
program. The Los Angeles Gay Community
Services Center on Highland Avenue in
Hollywood moved from its original home on
6th Street near downtown L.A.
1979 Don Kilhefner co-founded a spiritual
movement known as the Radical Faeries.
This pagan-inspired group continues
internationally based on the principal
that the consciousness of gays differs
from that of heterosexuals. Don also
organized a Coors boycott in Los Angeles.
"For a long time gays have been minimizing
their differences from heterosexuals
as an act of survival. But now, for the
first time in history, gay people are
being urged to begin maximizing our
differences from straights as an act of
love, to ourselves and to them."
