GLF leafleting the gay scene


"We used to leaflet the gay scene about political things, we had tactics around this as we were often threatened (by other gay people) and we had been beaten up. We used to have to find a route through the pub, hand out the leaflets and get out the other way as the management used to hate us doing it. I was chased out of the , at the back of the Alex (Alexandra Theatre). The Nightingale was at at this point and used to run it, he was very anti GLF; he thought we were rocking the boat, making an exhibition of ourselves. I went there one night smuggling in leaflets and handing them out surreptitiously. Someone told him and I was thrown out, literally onto the pavement."
