This photo was credited to Rink Foto and comes from the Leslie Lohman Museum. The picture is dated 1984 and from the street sign, we can see it was taken in San Francisco’s traditional gay neighborhood, The Castro.
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. Do you have a photo you would like to share? Email me at email@example.com.
