TIME Magazine publishes an unsigned two-page article written by Contributing Editor Christopher Cory, researched by Madeleine Berry and reported by Ruth Galvin titled “The Homosexual in America” (See contents for TIME magazine Oct. 31, 1969 Vol. 94, No. 18, p. 9). The article includes statements such as “Homosexuality] is a pathetic little second-rate substitute for reality, a pitiable flight from life. . . . it deserves no encouragement . . . no pretense that it is anything but a pernicious sickness.”
