I love the Faeries because they are so, well, Queer, and yes, I consider myself a Faerie. Harry Hay did found the Mattachine Society, which was the first successful gay liberation organization in modern America. I'm not so sure I would consider his stance regarding NAMBLA as odd. It certainly was against the mainstream lockstep thoughts and beliefs, which was what Harry was as well. I am not sure I buy all of his essentialist rhetoric, however. BTW, John Burnside, Harry Hay's widow, just celebrated his 91st birthday here in San Francisco at a Faerie Tea held at the LGBT Center!
