Flavia Rando and Perry Brass will discuss their personal experiences during the early years of the struggle for gay rights in New York. Flavia and Perry were two of the gay activists that used the Alternate U as a meeting place for organizing as well as liberated space hosting the world first public gay dance parties. Alternate U became a meeting place for gay activists mobilizing after the Stonewall riots in 1969. The Gay Liberation Front published the first issue of Come Out! A Newspaper by and for the Gay Community from Alternate U in 1969.
