"The whole thing was geared to the homosexual mafia, and women in art were known only for being 'lays.' 'Oh, that girl,' they would say, 'she's been with so-and-so and so and so. She's been around.' Though men sleep around just as much, they never get
that. They are not known to be 'so-and-so's boyfriend.'"
-- from Yoko's 1974 interview with Barney Hoskyns
I don't doubt that there were gay people in the Greenwich Village art scene, but a *mafia* of them?
