Historical Note

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.
