1960s, Mattachine Society, New York, (Extract), Gay rights, United States

well very simply the madison society is an organization dedicated to mutual understanding between society and homosexuals in a society that rejects any form of sex outside of the prescribed judeo-christian moral code our primary goal is legal and social reform and reform basically of the moral code and concept which includes sexuality as right or wrong we are self-help in the sense that homosexuals to understand the problems that they face every day must come to a better understanding of themselves and better able to stand tall and not be ashamed of themselves and not to feel guilty themselves before they can expect society to do the same for them the homosexual acts between consenting adults is illegal in every state in all 50 states with the one exception of illinois where the recent angel of the lord uh this was adopted in illinois in 1960. the penal codes have sometimes required uh up to 10 20 and even a possible life sentence i believe there is one state still in the united states where you can get a life sentence for a homosexual act um this of course is based in on the concept that homosexuality is something that is so unnatural and so grievous that in medieval times it was associated with demon possession we work through lobbyists in albany we don’t through lobbyists in washington because most of your sex code laws are state laws and not federal laws now these lobbyists are not employees of the medicine society they do not work for us they believe in our cause and therefore they work with us and many of them have to work secretively and very much on the slide because if it were known that they were backing a reform of this type they they would be in serious trouble socially and even perhaps even employment wise
