To Anna: did you come across instances where gay men fought back against police entrapment or the clandestine surveillance of public restrooms -- either in court or by actions outside the court proceedings? In Hamburg, Germany, in 1980 a gay activist smashed a mirror in a public restroom in order to reveal a hidden room where police was conducting surveillance & had journalists there to take a picture, causing a public scandal in the press. Such an action could probably only happen post-gay liberation -- but I still wonder whether you found anything like this either pre-Stonewall or after.

Thanks very much for your answer and congratulations on the book. Sorry for stumbling over my words there. I need to go back to Henry Higgins for elocution lessons.

(Indulging in the Zoom chat to share that I wore a red sweater in solidarity with the lesbian that you describe in your book! No black tie though.)
