Gay Alternatives Pittsburgh is one year old this month

On March 13, 1972, the idea for GAP began when Jack Baker, Sidney Abbott and Barbara Love spoke at a forum on homosexuality at the University of Pittsburgh. Since that time the gay liberation movement has really taken form in the Pittsburgh area . . . CR groups, weekly gay coffeehouses, political action, many speaking engagements ; newspaper, radio and TV appearances, gay dances, weekly gay community meetings,hosting a statewide gay convention and so much more. With a first year like this the local movement can only soar forward in the years to come. For a few moments, though, lets catch our breath and look at the year past.
