Scope and arrangement
Gay Youth was founded ca.1966 in New York City by Marc Segal for the purpose of supporting gay rights legislation, and providing young gays with an alternative to bars and bath houses in which to meet and socialize. It was affiliated with the National Gay Youth Committee of Philadelphia. It held weekly meetings at the Church of the Beloved Disciple, and also for a time shared office space with the Mattachine Society of New York. The records consist of one folder of correspondence of secretary Douglas Rodriguez, along with minutes, memoranda, and related ephemera.
