According to historic reports, Angela Douglas was a transwoman activist and member of the Los Angeles chapter of the Gay Liberation Front from 1969 to 1970. This person was also an artist and created this poster advertising a rally/march. "After participating in various protests and actions with the group – including a march outside Barney’s Beanery when it posted a sign reading Faggots Stay Out” – she left the Gay Liberation Front. She became frustrated with members’ apathetic and sometimes hostile attitudes in regard to transgender rights."
In 1970, Douglas started the Transsexual Action Organization, one of only two national organizations devoted to transgender rights.
