Gay Community Center Gay Dance flyers (1971)
In 1971, the Gay Community Center was established in the Charles Street Meeting House in Cambridge, then a center of political and cultural activism for gay men. Envisioned as an alternative to bars, the Center sponsored dances and a coffee house, and provided meeting space for gay groups. These flyers advertise gay dances sponsored by the Gay Community Center. The Center closed a few months after it opened due to internal disputes. From the William J. Canfield papers.
