Sexuality in Club-Packing

Deborah Glick, a Freddy supporter, explained to Gay City News how the club-packing she did in the 1980s differs from the club packing Giff and Scott (possibly) did at the Gay, Lesbian and Independent Democrats meeting recently.

“‘Packing clubs is a time honored tradition,’ she said…. ‘But in the 1980s we packed the club with gay people to vote an endorsement for a gay man, David Rothenberg [then running for City Council]….This is a packing of the club with gay and straight people, largely with people who are campaign staff, or from the staffs of elected officials. That is a somewhat different situation.”
