“I know that after I’m dead my book [‘The Celluloid Closet’] is going to be on a shelf someplace and that some sixteen-year-old kid who’s going to be a gay activist will read my work and carry the ball from there. That’ll happen. It happened with me. Harry Hay passed the ball to Mattachine and they passed the ball to us…There are young people in ACT UP...They’ll be here to fight over the more radical issues, like whether gay people have the right to adopt children, get married, teach in the public schools, and be open about being gay.” – Vito Russo (July 11, 1946 – November 7, 1990) to Eric Marcus (@makinggayhistorypodcast), 1989

Few people had as great of an impact on the queer liberation movement as Vito Russo, who was born seventy-one years ago today.
As an early member of the Gay Activists Alliance (GAA) and a founding member of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (@glaad) and ACT UP, Russo was among those who led the gay liberation movement through its most trying decades.
While working on his master’s degree in film, Russo began running movie night at GAA’s Firehouse, starting a decades-long pursuit to catalog and analyze queer representation in film; this work ultimately led to the groundbreaking lecture series, book, and film, "The Celluloid Closet."
In 1983, Russo created and co-hosted one of the first LGBT-focused news series, "Our Time," for WNYC-TV.
In 1985, in response to the New York Post’s defamatory AIDS coverage, Russo used his expertise in media representation to cofound GLAAD. That same year, Russo was diagnosed with HIV, and he subsequently became one of the most visible and powerful figures in ACT UP.
Vito Russo died of AIDS-related complications on November 7, 1990; he was forty-four years old. #lgbthistory#HavePrideInHistory#Resist #
