Give That Man A Blow Job: Harry Hay, Founder Of The Mattachine Society & Radical Faeries

Harry Hay, born April 7th, 1912 established the Mattachine Society in 1950! A full nineteen years before Stonewall.

(BTW, technically, Stonewall was an uprising, not a riot.)

Harry Hay was a Marxist and active supporter of Native American rights which inspired Hay to co-found the Radial Faeries with his long term boyfriend John Burnside.

He was vocally anti-assimilation, with quotes like;

Harry Hay Quotes

I condemn the national gay press for its emphasis on consumerism.

Even the “Mattachine” name is subversive, according to the opening credits of the documentary of Harry Hay’s life produced by Eric Slade:

The Mattachine mocked the monarchy to stir rebellion.

Harry Hay was a pretty cool faerie!  With the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising coming up, it would do us all some good to remember the anti-assimilationist, anti-commercialism that was at the heart of the gay rights movement.  Harry Hay died on October 24, 2002.

Enjoy this well deserved blow job – on us!

Also, here is a list of a bunch of political action that pre-dates the Stonewall Uprising, including the little known Cooper Do-Nuts Uprising in 1959 and the semi-famous Compton’s Cafeteria Uprising in  1966.
