Homosexual Movement Updates
In my book Christians in the Wake of the Sexual Revolution, published in 1985, I have a chapter entitled “The Homosexual Movement.” Here’s just a partial portrait of the homosexual community:
In gay baths men meet and copulate with total strangers and often have sex with multiple partners. Government official Dan Bradley described his first visit to a gay bath: “I must have had sex with ten different guys that first night. I was like a kid in a candy store.” The baths allow sexual relations in front of others or in private cubicles, often without even the exchange of names. Some bath houses or “gay health clubs” have rooms for group sex and pornographic movies.
Gay leather shops sell spiked collars, whips and pain-inflicting devices used in sexual encounters. S & M (Sadism and Masochism) parlors are sexual torture chambers that defy description. Sometimes they employ medical personnel to treat wounds and apply stitches to damaged genitals.
Many who avoid the gay bars and baths buy sexual favors regularly. As early as 1976 on researcher estimated there were already more than 300,000 boy prostitutes in the United States.
The homosexual movement maintains an extensive communications network. It has its pornographic magazines such as BlueBoy, which alone has a readership of 800,000. But more importantly, it has its weekly and monthly newspapers widely circulated in the gay community. Typical of these is a Portland paper, The Cascade Voice, a large forty-eight page tabloid issued every few weeks. It is full of sexually graphic advertisements, including nude and sadomasochistic pictures, female impersonators, and classified ads requesting sex partners. Businesses owned by homosexual proprietors and those courting the business of the homosexual community advertise in such papers. One issue lists dozens of Portland homosexual gatherings and events coming up in the next week alone—and no less than seventy-five in the next three weeks.
