Martha Robinson Rhodes, Bisexuality, several Gender Attraction, and Gay Liberation Politics into the records for the Gay that is british liberation (GLF) portray it since radical and comprehensive, searching for alliances with counter cultural teams, so when an earlier proponent associated with idea of ‘queer’.

But, its radical politics relied on a division that is binary ‘gay’ and ‘straight’ that linked various sex attraction with regressive politics and could maybe perhaps not accommodate bisexuality or attraction to numerous genders. This short article compares GLF’s approach to bisexuality and multiple gender attraction with that of this more ‘moderate’ Campaign for Homosexual Equality (C.H.E.) through the 1970s. Initially, C.H.E. had been more accepting, although this declined during the period of the ten years because it, too, became more connected with liberationist politics. Awareness of bisexuality and attraction to numerous genders during this time period consequently challenges historic narratives concerning the ‘queer’ inclusivity of gay liberation as well as 1970s radical politics more generally speaking.
