(60) I Remember GLBT

Here's one significant cultural change in the GLBT (excuse me, LGBT) community in my lifetime. The ability to work together. When I came out, the community was absolutely --at least in Toledo -- segregated by gender.

The word I heard from the Wymyn's community: men not welcome. Not that I really wanted to attend a Wymyn's Dance anyway.

Men ran the gay rights group --Personal Rights, PRO. Its stated policy was that men and women were equally welcome at Pro Toledo . The reality was that it was nearly all men. Perhaps because of a somewhat cruisy atmosphere in the social periods with lots of sexually charged banter and small talk. At least this is what we heard from the women who did not participate.

We've come a long way since then. Due in part to dropping the gender barrier.

Does anybody use the term "Wymyn's" anymore?
