  •  The two parts of the diary that (14+ / 0-)

    resonated with me:

    1. The Oliver Sipple episode because I didn't know about it and I like tobelieve that I have a solid knowledge of history; and moreover I am an outspoken supporter of LGBT rights. I remember the attempted assassination but never heard about the Sipple incident. His story proves your point regarding relevance. Had Sipple been recognized and honored I believe it would have impacted positively for the gay community.
    1. Carlytoo's point about her son reinforces the relevance argument. Young people need heroes with whom they can identify. I can only imagine the positive impact on my younger brother had he known of men like Tuning when he was struggling with his sexual identity back in the sixties.

    Thanks for the diary and for contributing to my continuing education.
