“The gay scene in Atlanta that I came into – there was hardly anything going on outside of the bar culture with men. It was different with women. There was Charis Bookstore, and there was ALFA- the Atlanta Feminist Women’s Alliance, there were women’s concerts. There was a women’s culture that was deliberate and constructed by the women, based on feminism, which was very attractive to me. But among gay people in general the only thing that was organized beyond the bars were the religious groups: MCC, Dignity, Integrity, Lutherans Concerned.”
