BIO

Peter Randolph Fisher was born in May 19, 1944 in Richmond, VA and graduated from high school in Eastchester, NY. He did two years at Amherst College, a short term in the Air Force then graduated from Columbia University in 1969. He joined Gay Activist Alliance (GAA) in 1970 and met his lover Marc Rubin – they were together until Marc’s death in 2007. He published 4 or 5 books, composed music, was an artist, was employed by Chemical Bank in the data center, had a software consulting business, Following is his own biographical statement of 1976. One of his manuscripts/journal was “The Story of the Gay rights Bill” 1970 to 1977 in new York City which will be of interest to reasearchers.

His biographical statement as of September 16, 1976 at age 32 (204 Lincoln Place, Brooklyn)”I graduated, with High Honors from Eastchester High School and did two years of study (on the Dean’s List) at Amherst College, College, majoring in psychology, before deciding to leave school in order to come to terms with being gay.

I worked as a laboratory technician for a year, and, when I was about to be drafted, enlisted in the Air Force, hoping to complete my education while in the service. While stationed in Texas as a psychiatric technician administering psychological tests and counseling basic trainees, I began attending night classes in political science at St. Mary’s University.

Getting out of the Air Force on a medical discharge, I began attending Columbia University in 1967, where I participated in the Political Science Department’s special Honors program. I received my B.A. Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa, in 1969, when I was awarded a full scholarship in the form, a Herbert H. Lehman Fellowship and began two years of graduate work at Columbia in political theory before resigning from the Ph.D. program to write The Gay Mystique.

THE GAY MOVEMENT

I became involved in the Gay Activists Alliance in 1970 while still at Columbia, and I quickly moved to a leadership position, first chairing ‘The Harper’s Action Committee, which staged a take-over of Harper’s Magazine’s offices to gently chide them for running a viciously anti-gay article. Next I chaired GAA’s ‘Committee on Committees’ which wrote mandates for all the organization’s other committees and was responsible for its committee structure at the height of the organization’s power in the early seventies, I next chaired the National Gay Movement Committee which sent out field workers across the nation to organize gay groups in cities lacking them.

Since then, my lover Marc (a founder and leader of New York City’s Gay Teachers Association) helped found, the National Gay Task Force and served on its initial Board of Directors. Because of the response to The Gay Mystique, I have had the opportunity over the past several years to visit gay organizations on college campuses in many other states.

WRITING

My first hook, The Gay Mystique, was published in hard cover by Stein & Day in 1972 and was promptly named co-winner of the American Library Association’s Gay Book of the Year Award (shared by Lesbian/Woman, by Lyons and Martin). Stein & Day brought out a paperback edition that fall, which is now in its second printing.Before getting my book contract, I had been writing as a reporter for the gay press, primarily GAY, New York [Lige Clark and Jack Nichol] based paper that has since folded.When I finished The Gay Mystique, I began works on a large political novel about the Nixon era and the Watergate scandal; a section of the book appeared in OUT magazine in 1974 under the title, NUMBNUTS. I finished the book, a truly massive work, at the end of 1975 and have been busy writing my next book, a novel about Star Trek, ever since. I expect to complete it this fall and have a list of at least half a dozen other books I am determined to write.”

Peter and Marc Rubin are in “Out of the Closet” film in 1971[photographs Box 14].His 1990s resume [box 10] shows he was employed by Chemical Bank, Jericho, LI, branch, data Center from 1983 to 1992. He also had a software business “Beyond Communications” in Chatham NY with his brother Randy Fisher. He has a sister named Lynne, his father is Andrew and mother Cornelia (Connie) (Vero Beach, FL).

Notebooks, Diaries, Journals (“Time capsule early family material, very personal, special items. I have not gotten permission from people in the photographs – wait a few decades, personal notebooks, journals.”)Note: The diaries and journals report a relationship with a young Marine (in February of 1980 his age was 22). They met at a newsstand New Year’s 1979 when the Marine admired Pete’s tattoos. Pete got the Marine’s address and wrote to him at his base but did not see him again until May 1979. It was an infatuation for Pete even though he did not think the Marine was gay. Marc was “cool” about the relationship. There was correspondence and occasional visits in 1980 to 1982. Pete “my Marine” married a woman from Hawaii and eventually moved there and sent Christmas cards with his family photos up to at least 1992 (see folder “Photographs Friends”).
