Editor’s note: This is the second of a two-part series highlighting events in Oklahoma City around which a gay community rallied and coalesced. Much of the reporting is based on Aaron L. Bachhofer’s 2006 dissertation, “The Emergence and Evolution of the Gay and Bisexual Male Subculture in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, 1889- 2005” and recent interviews.
