THIS DAY IN DAILY HISTORY
Homosexual women complain of discrimination
Dec. 9, 1973 — Members of the Gay Awareness Women’s Kollective (GAWK) filed complaints with the city’s Human Rights Department against the owner of the Rubaiyat bar, Greg Fenerli. They charged him with discrimination against gay women.
On numerous occasions Fenerli and the women have clashed over what he calls “their openly sexual behavior” since last May when the homosexual women began congregating at the bar in large numbers.
“My standards on public sexual behavior are the same for heterosexuals as for gay people,” Fenerli said. “These women were exhibiting their sexual practices in public.”
