ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

Men of All Colors Together/New York (MACT/NY) is a multiracial, multicultural organization of gay and bisexual men in New York City committed to addressing and combating racism and discrimination in the lesbian and gay male community and to providing a supportive environment for non-oppressive multiracial relating among gay men. Started under the name Black and White Men Together/New York, the organization maintains links with the National Association of Black and White Men Together (NABWMT). Mike Smith started BWMT San Francisco in February 1980, and Henry Wiemhoff organized the first meeting of BWMT/NY on June 6, 1980. The first issue of the BWMT/NY Information Bulletin, a two-page mimeographed newsletter, appeared a few weeks later, and Lidell Jackson soon took over as editor.
