Nicholas F. Benton, pioneer gay liberation activist of the Stonewall era and for 22 years the founder, owner and editor of the award-winning Northern Virginia general interest weekly newspaper, the Falls Church News-Press, wrapped up a 100-part weekly series entitled, “Nick Benton’s Gay Science,” last week that ran weekly from Oct. 15, 2010 to Sept. 7, 2012 on the web edition of the Falls Church News-Press, and reprinted weekly in the Washington, D.C.-based gay community news magazine, Metro Weekly.
