40th Anniversary of Wilde-Stein Club Focus of BDN Article

The Bangor Daily News reported on the 40th anniversary of the Wilde-Stein Club, the first openly gay student organization in Maine. The club was started by a group of University of Maine students to attract people who felt ostracized and closed off from the rest of society because of their sexual preferences. On Oct. 18, two of the group’s founders, Steven Bull and John Frank, met with the group’s current members and university officials to tell the story about the club’s beginnings and to celebrate the changes that have since taken place. The group is now called The Wilde-Stein Alliance for Sexual Diversity.
