Gays ... The San Francisco Experiment

About This Item

A special report by KRON-TV from 1979 which: "examines important social change, a glimpse of one of those most astonishing phenomenons of our time: gays and the San Francisco experiment." Includes segments about the political and economic power of San Francisco's gay citizenry and interviews with Dianne Feinstein, John Burton, Jerry Brown and Harvey Milk.

Note that audio on the BetaSP master videotape cuts out after 10 minutes and the rest of this program is silent. These silent scenes include images of: nightlife; clubs; disco; the murder of Harvey Milk, an interview with Anita Bryant and the White Night Riots. We will restore this sound, if the audio elements are discovered elsewhere in the KRON Collection. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.

Fishy... KRON... SFPD... I think it is very important that you "find" the missing audio to this footage... The subject matter of the SFPD's homophobia during the 70's is vital.
