Out of the Closets & into the Libraries        Created by Daryl Vocat www.darylvocat.com

"The slogan Out of the Closets and into the Libraries is a revised version of an early gap liberation slogan, Out of the Closets and into the Streets. In the early days of gay liberation this slogan was used as a way to emphasize the value of being open and honest, and to promote queer visibility. One of the few ways to challenge negative stereotypes about queer sexuality is to be open about it."
