|I am delighted and honored to
accept the StoneWall Society International Ulrichs Award for Exemplary
Community Contribution. I remain as passionate in my quest for queer
liberation as I was when I first came out and began campaigning in 1969.
It has been my great privilege to be part of the worldwide queer
emancipation movement, and to have made a small contribution
towards challenging the bigotry that has blighted so many queer lives. I accept this award with aknowledgement and gratitude to the many people who have helped my campaigns over the last three decades. Without their support and solidarity, my work for queer visibility, acceptance and human rights would be much diminished. I salute them. Solidarity and Salutations!
