Recently, while reading an article about the JFK assassination, a particular quote leapt out at me. The source - Rose Cheramie, a stripper in the employ of Jack Ruby (Rubinstein) - exclaimed after reading a headline about her boss and his possible relationship to Lee Harvey Oswald, “Them two queer sons-of-a-bitches, they've been shacking up for years.”
Ms. Cheramie uttered these words only days after Ruby had shot and killed Oswald with a .38 revolver in the basement of Dallas police headquarters. Major networks broadcast this harrowing event live to millions of viewers.
At any rate, I'd previously heard these gay rumors, but had never investigated them any further. After all, wasn't every conceivable angle of JFK's murder already addressed in hundreds of books and documentaries? Depending on which author you read, either the CIA killed the president, or else it was Israel, Texas oilmen, bankers, Cubans and/or Fidel Castro, the Russians, Mafia mobsters, the military-industrial complex, Lyndon Johnson, Freemasons, or Vatican assassins. There are even some that claim George Bush, Sr. played a pivotal role, or that Kennedy was eliminated because he tried to open top-secret UFO files.
But no book has been entirely devoted to the predominance of gays and/or bisexuals in what is still, to this day, one of the greatest conspiracies of all-time. Of course, various journalists have penned articles on this subject, but none of them expanded their scope to an all-encompassing level. Therefore, this publication will examine one of the most under-reported aspects of the November 22, 1963 slaying that, quite literally, changed the world and forever altered America's innocence.
