Happy Pride. This vintage moment is from the Gay Freedom Day parade of 1986. I guess back then freedom was more important than pride.
Pictured is Joe Smith, wearing a MEN’S room sign headress and not much else.
Joe died a few years later from HIV, one of dozens more pictured during happier times in my upcoming photo exhibit “Black And White Nostalgia”.
It’s at STRUT SF, July 2019. Opening reception is Friday July 12.
