The Long Hard Road For Transgender Rights: ‘No one has the right to take the “T” out of LGBT’
In the early years of the movement there really was no LGBT community. There was real separatism – and sometimes even bad blood – between the gay male community and lesbians. Many men refused to come to terms with issues of concern for women. Gay men were not immune from the sexism of the times. Many women passed judgement on what they thought to be ‘the gay male lifestyle.’ The Transgender community, with few exceptions, was relegated to the fringe and many forced isolation on them within the community. Many gays and lesbians didn’t even believe bisexuality existed and that all bisexual people were simple closet cases.
