Lesbian and Gay Political Alliance brochure and letter (1988)
“But we need your help to continue the struggle
against injustice and discrimination in 1988.”
In July 1987, the Massachusetts Senate initially granted approval
of a gay civil rights bill; however, during the third reading in
December 1987, the bill was killed. In 1988, the Greater Boston
Lesbian and Gay Political Alliance made passage of the gay civil
rights bill one of its top priorities, citing increasing discrimination
and violence against gays and lesbians. Endorsing progressive candidates
was a primary method for the Alliance’s political action.
