Letters to the Editor


To the Editors of the Crimson:

Chuck Fraser's "Coming Out" bears eloquent testimony to the kinds of experiences gay men and lesbians have to go through--in our society as a whole and here at Harvard. It will, hopefully, encourage many people, straight and gay, to confront their feelings and come to terms with them--so that there will be fewer gays going through the emotional gymnastics necessary to life in the closet and fewer paranoid and stereotype-ridden straight people to contend with while coming, and being, out.

Gays are asserting, ever more strongly, that "Gay Right are Human Rights." Ten per cent of the population can not be silenced or kept down any longer. It is encouraging to see a piece like this in the Crimson. --Kevin M. Cathcart
