The Vassar Gay Liberation Front, the college's first acknowledged gay student organization, held an organizational meeting in the Gold Parlor. Some two dozen students gathered to discuss such issues as whether the organization was to be a political one or a "loose social coaltion" and how the group could best gain recognition by the Student Government Association (SGA) and thus be eligible for funding and have access to the college calendar for its events. Most attendees "stressed," according to The Miscellany News, "that they did not want the Gay Lib Front tagged as a political organization." The chair—whose name was witheld by The Misc. by request—directed any political questions to Paul Travis, a student at the State University of New York (SUNY) at New Paltz, a member of the state Gay Activists Alliance who spoke to the gathering about a protest march planned for April in Albany.
