Books: Roommates can't always be lovers

Elijah Hadyn "Lige" Clarke was an American LGBT activist and journalist. Together with his partner Jack Nichols, Clarke created and wrote The Homosexual Citizen in 1968, which sounded the first call to arms following the Stonewall uprising. Running in Screw magazine, it was the first regular LGBT-interest column printed in a non-LGBT publication. Because of the success of their column, Nichols and Clarke became known as the "most famous gay couple in America"--making them the first and only "Super-Stars” the gay community had ever known. Nichols and Clarke together wrote I have more fun with you than anybody and Roommates Can't Always Be Lovers. From 1964, Lige wrote, thought about and fought for same-sex love, for the obliteration of destructive prejudices and boundaries and for a new human being freed from the shackles of traditional conditioning and its resultant moral shackles. On February 10, 1975, Clarke was shot and killed in Vera Cruz, Mexico. Nichols was convinced that the murder was the result of "machismo's homophobic influences", but it remains officially unsolved.
Together from (before) 1968 to 1975: 7 years.
