Bayard Rustin: The Man Homophobia Almost Erased From History - BuzzFeed

Bayard Rustin: The Man Homophobia Almost Erased From History - BuzzFeed | PinkieB.com | LGBTQ+ Life | Scoop.it

Like so many gay New Yorkers of his era, a 27-year-old Walter Naegle went to Times Square one afternoon in 1977 and met a man. The tall man with the shock white in his Afro introduced himself as Bayard Rustin. Black and 37 years Naegle’s senior, Rustin was — to a well-informed circle of activists, historians, and politicos — one of the giants of the 20th-century political organizing. The chance encounter was the beginning of a revolutionary love story, a decade-long relationship that, in many ways, epitomizes our country’s journey from Selma to Stonewall.
