In my 60's and still kicking. I live in Palm Springs, CA and I am a big ole bear. Love the gay life and out…
I was part of that exciting early times in the '60's. 'Lil and I, as well as a large number of other gays from Atlanta, charleston and Savannah went to jail in Savannah after the police raided a private Halloween party. After a night in jail, my mother drove over from Beaufort, SC and after bailing me out, we started bailing the other "party-goers" out of jail too. 'Lil convinced us to jointly hire an attorney and fight the trumped up charges in court in Savannah. We did and the judge dismissed the case and said the city of Savannah owed us an apology for the way the police treated us. There must have been 10-15 of us thrown in jail that night. Thanks to Diamond 'Lil, I became a gay activist and have been fighting for gay causes since. I would love to touch base with 'Lil again. I am Clark Bufkin and 'Lil can reach me at email@example.com. Please help me say "Thanks!" to the person who made me who I am today! Thank you, Diamond 'Lil, I have always admired your dedication and strength and I hope I have made you proud!
