 Cuban refugees at Fort McCoy


Photograph of Cuban refugees at Fort McCoy (Wisconsin). Published in GayLife, Friday, August 8, 1980. Original caption: "The refugees told of rape and beatings in the camp by non-gay refugees. It's important to get the gay refugees out as quickly as possible. Fort McCoy, Wisc. and Indian Gap, Pa. will close in a month. All refugees will be herded into the already crowded and most turbulent camp of all: Fort Chafee, Ark." Thom Higgins papers, Manuscripts Collection, Minnesota Historical Society, St. Paul.
