This is a flier for a poetry reading fundraiser for the Council on Religion and the Homosexual. While we locate little about the event, it featured a blockbuster lineup of important LGBTQ+ literary figures including Elsa Gidlow (misspelled here as “Giglow”) whose “On a Grey Thread” is considered to be the first book of openly lesbian poetry published in North America. It also featured Judy Grahn and African American Pat Parker, both fairly early in their careers. Founders of Manroot, Paul Mariah (mispelled here as “Moriah”) and Rich Tagett are also shown on the bill. While not noted as such, this was Mariah's copy.
