Historical Calendar - September 1st

  • 1969 - West Germany repeals its laws prohibiting homosexual acts between consenting adults. It's interesting to note that this change didn't affect lesbians, as West German sex laws had never acknowledged the existence of lesbians.
  • 1977 - Log Cabin Republicans club is formed in in Southern California (originally called "Gay Republicans). I still say it should be an oxymoron.
  • 1978 - The Gay Bob doll makes its debut in stores across the nation.
  • 1979 - Researchers at Columbia University issue a report that concludes that homosexuality is a result of nurture, not nature ("upbringing and psychological causes").
  • 1979 - New Jersey decriminalizes private consensual adult homosexuals acts.
  • 1980 - John Boswell's Christianity, Social Tolerance, and Homosexuality debuts in book stores.
