Harry Hay composed the first manifesto of the American Gay Rights Movement in 1948.

"We know how to live through their eyes. We can always play their games, but are we denying ourselves by doing this? If you're going to carry the skin of conformity over you, you are going to supress the beautiful prince or princess within you."
