    This web site is intended to be simple — fast to download and easy to navigate. The main aim is to present writings by myself and others in the areas most important in my life.

    I'm a writer and retired survey research analyst. In my time I've been an antiwar activist, a gay liberationist, an AIDS dissident, a publisher, and an all-around freethinker. I've spoken out when people with common sense kept their mouth shut. I've exposed fraud, punctured group fantasies, and blasphemed against the prevailing superstitions. For doing so I've taken some hard knocks — but I've also made good friends and a name for myself. Here's my bio.

    The site is divided into the following sections:

        • My Books

        • Gay Liberation

        • Male Love Among The Romantics

        • Freethought

        • AIDS

        • Feminism

        • Harriet Shelley Pages
