According to the Historical Society of Northern California, this photo was taken in San Francisco’s Castro neighborhood in the 1970s. For more images check out the article The Castro: The rise of a gay neighborhood.
I dedicate this weekly post, featuring vintage gay photographs, to the men and women who lived in a more critical time where being true to yourself and loving who you want wasn’t always an option and came at a great price.
