Description
Correspondence, fact sheets, new releases, memoranda, and articles documenting activities of the Gay Persons Alliance (GPA), 1975-1976. Formed in Los Angeles in March of 1976, the GPA argued that the California Fair Employment Practices Commission should include sexual orientation among the forms of employment discrimination prohibited within its jurisdiction.
Background
The Gay Persons Alliance (formerly known as the California Committee for Executive Implementation of Gay Rights) was the name applied to a campaign by gay and lesbian activists to convince California's Fair Employment Practices Commission (FEPC) to include sexual orientation as a prohibited form of discrimination. The efforts of the GPA focused on a March 11, 1976 hearing held by the FEPC in Los Angeles to document testimony from people unable to travel to San Francisco for the official hearing on the matter.
