Buried: Montefiore Cemetery, Springfield Gardens, Queens County, New York, USA
Anniversary: February 2, 1974

Israel David Fishman was best known for founding the Task Force on Gay Liberation (TFGL), a section of the Social Responsibilities Round Table of the American Libraries Association. After leaving librarianship, Fishman went to Los Angeles, California for a period of work and study at the Gay Community Services Center. He returned to New York in the winter of 1973. A course in Swedish massage led to a new career as a masseur. On February 2, 1974, Fishman met Carl Navarro at a performance of the play Out of the Frying Pan at the West Side Discussion Group (a regular gathering of gay men in New York City). The two became boyfriends (their preferred term), and began living together shortly thereafter, beginning a lasting relationship. The couple's activities included, for a number of years, lengthy annual trips to Italy, where they established many friendships. They celebrated their twentieth anniversary with a festive dinner party in 1994. They celebrated their 32 anniversary just before Fishman’s sudden death.
Together from 1974 to 2006: 32 years.
Israel David Fishman (February 21, 1938 - 2006)
