Homosexual relationships in the 1960's

 Hello! I am writing a fanfiction, and would love to get some help on board.

The storyline is set in the 1960's at Ohio, about two male teenagers in college who begin a secret affair. I've had much input from the internet about the historical aspect of that time, but not specific to the social perception of homosexuality during those days in Ohio. Would anyone have any idea how accepted/unaccepted homosexual relationships were during that time?

And also, care to explain to me the mechanics of university dormitories and becoming dorm mates? I was planning to set up that fic mostly on a university dorm, and I really have no idea regarding that.

I thank in advance all those who care to share anything they might know or find. Have a great day!

Edit: I have decided to tackle with the Summer of Love and Gay Liberation in San Francisco of the late 1960's. If anyone has information, especially actual stories from people who had lived through those times, I would appreciate it so much!
