Notes
"In the late '60s, the Roman Sauna opened, the first sauna designed for and operated by gay men. It was spectacular. It had a swimming pool and an atrium where you could look out over people. The best thing was that it was known to be for us, by us. " - George Hislop, Daily Xtra, March 7, 2001 http://www.dailyxtra.com/toronto/hislop-the-habitu%C3%A9-56433
