Opportunity for Research[edit]

While twenty years ago Boys in the Band might have been considered passe, by 2012, as the country enters a second Civil Rights Movement, the work has growing historical importance. It was a dramatic cross section of the last generation of gay men living in the closet, and resigned to that. It would make an excellent thesis topic in any American Studies course, now. Gay history, like black history in the Fifties, has become American history. Profhum (talk) 18:54, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

Crowley's sexuality[edit]

Is he openly gay? I could not find reliable sources online to verify. I wonder if anybody has published offline sources. If anybody has access to primary sources, like Crowley himself, make sure that his sexuality is open in published papers (newspaper or books). --George Ho (talk) 10:49, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

I found out that I confused "Mart" with "Matt". Therefore, I found sources that must be reliable enough to confirm it. --George Ho (talk) 16:37, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

Uncited info[edit]

Crowley's second work, Remote Asylum, was mounted with great expectations at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles in 1970, but it failed to garner the raves his debut had. In that same year, he enjoyed greater success with the motion picture adaptation of The Boys in the Band. With his next play, the autobiographical A Breeze from the Gulf, he regained cachet with the critics and earned a Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award nomination for Best Play. The Men From the Boys, his sequel to The Boys in the Band was produced by the New Conservatory Theatre Center in San Francisco in 2002, and by the Fountain Theatre in Los Angeles in 2003.

The above is uncited; I just skimmed the passage down into a version that implies a reference to the primary source without need of inline citation. --George Ho (talk) 17:10, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
