Notes
Stamped: Canadian Gay Archives. JUN 20 1981 Handwritten text inside card reads: "Stephen: As we your older ____s are always concerned about the education of our little ____, ne(e) Fuckalotavitch, we bought you this card. We trust you will stay home tonight & memorize it. No doubt it will come in handy on the second Tuesday of every month." In different script: "We hope that you will study this card well & practice wearing all the hankies in all the different positions until you have mastered (slaved?) the techniques of sex in all their manifold varieties. In several months Carlos + I will be giving you a written and oral (!!) test to see if you have learned your lessons well. If you fail the test, you will be subjected to severe B&D. Your stern but loving Masters, Tony & Carlos" Contines: "P.S. The Day After. Tony practiced w/ the red hankies last night. We finally figured out why they call it elbow grease in this part of the world. Me? Snorting coke, doin' MDA + getting fucked on a desk, veranda etc." "This place is so decadent it makes a Roman orgy look like Tricia Nixon's birthday party. Carlos at least has met a nice guy, but I have been indulging in sleaze. Oh well, on to the wholesome environment of New York (!). Tony & Carlos"

Notes
Came inside a white envelope stating: "purchased at Glad Day books [1980]" Inside text: "We recognize the importance of making known our history, so much of which has been lost or stolen, and particularly of commemorating the victories of lesbians and gay men. Given the historic importance of the acquital of the officers of Pink Triangle Press as the first major legal victory for the Canadian gay movement, and given the fortuitous date of that victory, we propose a yearly celebration to mark the day. We realize that this date, February 14, has traditionally been celebrated as St. Valentine's Day and dedicated to the expression of heterosexual affection. We take this opportunity to challenge what Christopher Isherwood has called the "heterosexual dictatorship" by affirming, for ourselves and for the world, the existence, the strength, and the beauty of gay love. A central symbol of St. Valentine's Day has been the figure of Cupid, derived from the ancient Greek Eros. We intend to make this day a celebration of the liberation of Eros, both as a reality in our personal lives since coming out, and as a common political goal to be achieved. We therefore proclaim February 14 as an annual Canadian Gay Holiday, to be known as Pink Triangle Day. This proclamation was passed unanimously by the closing plenary session of the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Rights Coalition annual conference, July, 1979." Stamped: JUN 20 1981
