Countering Hate Violence Against Gay Men and Lesbians in Boston, press release and 10-point plan (1990)
1990 saw a disturbing rise in “gay-bashings” and other hate-related crimes against gay men and lesbians in Boston. Working with Boston city-leaders to reduce anti-gay violence and broaden awareness about the problem, the Greater Boston Lesbian/Gay Political Alliance released a 10-point plan to Boston police and city officials suggesting ways to ensure the safety of the gay community and to prosecute hate-crime perpetrators. From the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Political Alliance of Massachusetts records.
