Notes
About the bookshop - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oscar_Wilde_Bookshop "The Oscar Wilde Bookshop was the first bookstore devoted to gay and lesbian authors. It was founded by Craig Rodwell in 1967 as the Oscar Wilde Memorial Bookshop. Initially located at 291 Mercer Street, it moved in 1973 to Christopher Street and Gay Street in New York City's Greenwich Village neighborhood. It is named after author Oscar Wilde. The bookstore closed on March 29, 2009 citing the Great Recession and challenges from online bookstores. Despite a limited selection of materials when the bookstore was first established, Rodwell refused to stock pornography and instead favored literature by gay and lesbian authors. In March 1968 Rodwell began publishing a monthly newsletter from the bookshop, calling it HYMNAL. Early organizing meetings for the first Pride Parade in New York City were held at the bookshop in 1970."

Notes
"Twelve, fifteen years ago the Village was over-run with 'invert' joints of all descriptions. A mad orgy of the Third Sex. Visitors broke arms and legs getting down to visit the jaunts of the strange, shrieking tribe. There were Paul and Joe's, The Little Gray Hen, Dolly Judge's 'Flowerpot' (poor Dolly is now dead) and many more of that ilk. The Village still has its resorts of the 'queers' but quite sotto voce by comparison. The hand-on-hips boys have ceased to be a novelty. But they're mad as the devil about it."
