Ethnographic Fieldwork and Qualitative Research Summaries
May 2010–Aug. 2012. Visiting Scholar. Oviatt Library, CSUN. This study built on prior publications on the first wave of LGBT activism in Los Angeles, the homophile era. Study focus was on the emergence of four gay and lesbian institutions that emerged in Los Angeles in the 1960s and early ’70s: Christopher Street West, The Advocate, the Metropolitan Community Church, and the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center. Primary consultants include core individuals who worked to influence or form these enduring institutions including Aristide Laurent, Mark Thompson, Rev. Troy Perry, Rev. Florine Fleischman, Michael Kearns, Billy Glover, Jeanne Barney, Don Kilhefner, and others. Primary archival resources from the HIC Collection of the Vern and Bonnie Bullough Collection on Sex and Gender, CSUN.
Primary research questions: 1) How did these organizations differ from those of the first wave of homosexual activism, most notably ONE, the Daughters of Bilitis, and Mattachine? 2) Why do they endure? 3) What were the interrelationships between these institutions? (In what specific ways did they collaborate? Was there any formal or informal cooperation between them?) 4) What was it like to be a homosexual in the 1970s? How did institutions such as those under study influence the overall sense of safely, identity, and community to those living in West Hollywood and other neighborhoods of Los Angeles? 5) How does the sexuality movement of the 1970s figure into all of this?
