Because Off Off Broadway was the cradle of modern gay theater well before the Stonewall riots erupted in June 1969, it became thereafter a convenient home for a number of gay-rights themed musicals about gay men, including The Faggot, Boy Meets Boy, Lovers, and Gay Company. These musicals, along with the musicalsLet My People Come and Sextet, areexamined in relation to the trajectory of the gay rights movement as it developed during the 1970s.
