The Pioneer: Harry Hay

This week, on the Queer Power Hour, we meet one of the most influential men of the gay rights movement: Harry Hay, who co-founded both the Mattachine Society in the 50s and the Radical Faeries in the late '70s.

  • First, Making Gay History revisits an interview with Harry from the late 1980s.
  • Then, Out in the Bay talks with a panel of Harry Hay experts, including his niece Sally Hay.
