The Sexual Freedom League was founded in 1963 in New York City. Julian Beck, Allen Ginsberg, and Dr. Leo Koch were among those on the Advisory Committee of the original group, which was active in demonstrations for a wide range of causes. Initially composed of a small membership of independent local chapters in New York, San Francisco, and London, the organization grew rapidly, especially in the San Francisco Bay Area after 1966. The League advocated for the right of each person to make their own sexual decisions, without coersion or restrictive laws, the end of sexual discrimination against homosexuals and women, and the spiritual and psychological liberation for all to embrace and enjoy their sexuality.
This issue contains an article on sexually transmitted diseases, “The Roving Reporter” street interviews, Sexual Freedom League chapter updates, photo spreads, book and film reviews, personal ads, and more.
