Should I Or Shouldn’t I?

Archangel Of The West Village, Wigstock NYC 1994.

I was so lucky to get a full length shot of this celestial creature, Wigstock was so crowded that year, 1994. It took more than 20 clicks before I got one that wasn’t obscured by 200,000 queens in wigs.

Should it be included in my up-coming show “Black And White Nostalgia” at STRUT SF in July? It’s a photographic romp through gay San Francisco from the late 70’s to the late 90’s. Yet this image is from New York City.

Hasn’t every gay man in SF been to our bigger, used to be more expensive sister city at least — a hundred times? I’m leaning towards pairing this vintage moment with dozens more local classic must-sees from the same era.

Vintage Gay SF

“‘Black And White Nostalgia — Vintage Gay S.F.” is the working title for my upcoming photo exhibit; July 2019 at STRUT SF. Reception on Friday, July 12 from 8pm to 10pm.

Here’s a few teaser images, out of dozens under consideration for this show.

Castro Street Fair, 1990 ish. He was intimidating at first, but was happy to pose. I gave him my card, but never heard from him. A collector mentioned he may have made a few adult films. Anyone know who he is, leave a comment below?

The first ever “Up Your Alley” festival, on Ringold Alley, July 1985. These crazy queens were selling kisses and beer.

Consuela Del Rio, drag mother at the Black Rose, 1984. The Black Rose was a rough and tumble drag bar in the gritty Tenderloin. I felt safe because she took me under her wing, and nobody messed with Consuela.

I came across this historical gem, taken back in 1984. It’s Eric Pendigar, leather master and craftsman, alternative music dj, and a breathtaking example of manliness. This was at the first ever Folsom Street Fair.
