Does it take one to know one? By (c) J. Pritikin
Sorry for the quality, I only had a photo copy, and I might take all day finding the original slide. I was on assignment for a Cover for a national Gay magazine-The Alternate in 1978. It was part of a survey that asked their readers "DOES IT TAKE ONE TO KNOW ONE?"
Their choice was either "Flash of the Mint and Tim Sullivan, of the Oilers. They were both 21 years old Rookies in San Francisco's Gay Community Softball League, the first gay sports league in the country. They brought their mothers to the games. One of these players happens to be gay, and the other straight. Let us know, you can do so by leaving a comment. If you are gay,then choose who you believe is gay, and vice versa if your straight. By the way,the cover never happened because the magazine's editor changed his mind.
IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME ON MY SITE, TAKE A LOOK AT THE ARCHIVES... SOME ARE STORIES THAT HAPPENED DURING THE 1970s, AND MANY ARE FROM THE 1980'S UP UNTIL NOW IN CHICAGO. I HOPE YOU TAKE TIME TO BE PART OF THE SURVEY, and
if you have any questions, just ask
