"Not Straight, Not White"

The sources of stigma for black gay men sprang from multiples sources and causes. Since the 1950s, Jet magazine routinely ran stories with homosexual themes, though often tinged with sensation, crime, and deviance. By 1965, with the leaking of the Moynihan Report, the white press presented a pathological family and a deviant masculinity, and thereby stimulated a new politics of black respectability that featured the condemnation of homosexuality.
