Back in 1965:
Dewey's Lunch Counter was a popular hangout spot for African-American LGBT's in Philadelphia. Claiming that gay customers were driving away other business, Dewey's began refusing to serve young patrons dressed in what they called 'non-conformist' clothing.
On April 25 more than 150 kids showed up in protest and were turned away by Dewey's. Three teenagers (two male, one female) refused to leave. The Philadelphia police arrested them along with the African-American gay activist who was advising them of their legal rights. The four people were charged and found guilty of misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
Members of the Philadelphia African-American LGBT community and other patrons set up a picket line outside.
On May 2 another sit in was staged. Police were called once again, but this time there were no arrests. Dewey's management backed down and promised to stop denying service.
The Janus Society, one of the few LGBT advocacy groups in existence, described it this way:
“All too often there is a tendency to be concerned with the rights of homosexuals as long as they somehow appear to be heterosexual, whatever that is. The masculine woman and the feminine man are looked down upon...but the Janus Society is concerned with the worth of the individual and the manner in which she or he comports himself. What is offensive today we have seen become the style of tomorrow, and even if what is offensive today remains offensive to some persons tomorrow, there is no reason to penalize non-conformist behavior unless there is direct anti-social behavior connected with it.Not only important as having been led by African-Americans, the whole thing was studied by a man who would, four years later, make sure a demonstration would change history. His name, Craig Rodwell.
