Gay activists in Germany silent on alliance with pedophiles in 1980s

In July 1981, the gay interest magazine Rosa Flieder published an interview with Olaf Stüben. Stüben was one of the most infamous pedophiles in Germany at the time. As a writer for the leftist newspaper Die Tageszeitung, he openly advocated for people to accept pedophilia as healthy and moral.

The interview in “Rosa Flieder” was not a one-off lapse.
