Gay rights and free speech One contribution that is often considered his most significant and most controversial was his openness about homosexuality. Ginsberg was an early proponent of freedom for men who loved other men, having already in discovered within himself "mountains of homosexuality. Later homosexual writers saw his frank talk about homosexuality as an opening to speak more openly and honestly about something often before only hinted at or spoken of in metaphor.

He was a staunch supporter of others whose expression challenged obscenity laws William S. When his point about free speech had been made, Allen quit the organization. Throughout the s he took an active role in the demystification of LSD and with Timothy Leary worked to promote its common use.

An important figure when considering inspiration for "Howl" is Carl Solomon. The full title is "Howl for Carl Solomon.
