I'm piecing together the history of "gay Lowell." Can anyone share memories of the bar scene especially the Moody Gardens. Thanks.

Maybe if I rephrase my question, my tone will improve. I am doing research on the history of the gay community in Lowell. Specifically during the 50s, 60s, abd 70s. During the 50s bars were very important important for gays/lesbians who wanted a chance to find one another and get a feeling of community. The Moody Gardens was one such bar and has been mentioned by authors writing about gay history (Joan Nestle, Lillian Faderman, Elizabeth Kennedy). So in general, I would be grateful to hear from anyone who has memories they would like to share. Thanks.

I can't see how the stark reality could be laid out in a more obvious way. So, here you go....

Statistics from the CDC show that 94 to 95 percent of HIV cases among young men are linked to gay sex:

Still think it's not a "Gay Disease?" It's OK, whatever helps you sleep at night.....

But, it's OK, take candy and soda out of schools and teach the kids about homosexuality. That way, they die quicker, right?

Does this post make me Homophobic? NOPE! I just happen to disagree with homosexuality. A phobia is an irrational fear. I don't "fear," I simply "disagree." Which, BTW, i have every right to do and based on the FACTS in these statistics, I really have no choice to. After all, why would I ever agree with something that kills so many great human beings?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
