What a fantastic project! The newly formed Pye/Harris Project was founded by 94-year old Edgar Pye, whose sixty-year life partner Robert Harris died in 2006. In Mr. Harris' honor, Pye created the project to show young gay people that a simple life of commitment and dignity can be used as a powerful political statement in and of itself.
The group put out a video this week that features a handful of teens interviewing some of our elder spokespersons about their experiences coming out in the 1950s. This is good stuff and you won't want to miss it. It's 14 minutes, but you'll sit glued to your computer screen the entire time.
