Summary
Randy Wicker was a leader of the homophile movement in New York in the 1960's and a gay rights activist during the early days of the gay liberation movement. As public relations director of the Homosexual League of New York (an organizational title apparently invented for publicity purposes) he was instrumental in breaking down the taboo against the discussion of homosexuality by the mainstream media. His papers, dated 1958 to 1993, consist of correspondence, miscellaneous papers and printed ephemera, reflecting Mr. Wicker's efforts as a gay activist in New York to focus public attention upon the status of gay men and lesbians in America, and to win understanding and support for their cause.
