Most people are unaware of the true nature of many gay activists. I’m sure the majority of homosexual men are against pedophilia, but some of the leaders of these gay rights movements are quite the opposite. One of those leaders is Harry Hay, who is one of the founders of the modern gay rights movement and is regarded as a “hero” for gay rights.
In 1950, Harry helped create the Mattachine Society, the first gay rights group in the United States. What many don’t know about Hay is that he was a supporter of the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA).
In the 1980s, Harry Hay joined with several other early gay rights activists in protesting the rejection of the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) from participation in LGBT social movements. Harry was questioned on his support for NAMBLA in a 1983 New York University forum, and said:
If the parents and friends of gays are truly friends of gays, they would know from their gay kids that the relationship with an older man is precisely what thirteen-, fourteen-, and fifteen-year-old kids need more than anything else in the world.”
At the 1986 Los Angeles Gay Pride Parade, he went even further with his defense of NAMBLA by wearing a banner with “NAMBLA Walks With Me” written on it.
Hay was also a follower of the Satanic Pedophile Aliester Crowley and created the Radical Faeries, a gay spiritual movement. In a 1979 conference for the “Radical Faeries”, Hay advertised the event with fliers that contained quotes from Aliester Crowley. These fliers were sent to gay bookstores and gay community centers to recruit gay men into this spiritual movement.
It seems that Hay must have been inspired by Crowley’s “sex magick.” In Crowley’s book, Magick, Crowley taught to rape and kill a child to get spiritual power:
For the highest spiritual working one must accordingly choose that victim which contains the greatest and purest force. A male child of perfect innocence and high intelligence is the most satisfactory and suitable victim.”
According to Crowley’s diaries, he performed this “sacrifice” about 150 times per year from 1912-1928. In a book written by Jonas E. Alexis, it describes Harry’s interest in magic:
In the late 1970s, Hay had returned from a decade in New Mexico, where he was seeking a living Berdache (a Native American gay male spirit guide). The experience of connecting his sexuality with his magickal-self had so completely affected Hay that he, along with his companion John Burnside and a small circle of friends, formed a gay men’s spiritual movement they dubbed the ‘Radical Faeries.’”
Stuart Timmons, a biographer and very close friend of Harry Hay, wrote:
Sometimes the kids from the Filth and Famine League would go hear Harry play the organ for the Los Angeles lodge of the Order of the Eastern Temple, or O.T.O., Aleister Crowley’s notorious anti-Christian spiritual group.”
During Harry’s years at Stanford University, he wrote many poems such as “Sodomy” and “Hell’s Patterns,” which has these lines:
Black and white patterns in magic/And me the mind that is chained/And what is an altar to God/When the cloth has been stained?”
Based on the evidence, one could theorize that Harry Hay’s Gay spiritual movement was really about teaching gay men about Crowley’s sex magick. Did Harry and his gay spiritual friends rape little boys to get “spiritual power” as Crowley talked about? Is this why Harry vehemently supported NAMBLA?
Could this be the true reason for why Harry founded the gay rights movement? One thing is for sure, Harry is not the “Hero” that many progressives make him out to be.
