Harvey Milk on San Francisco's Image & Gay Community

About This Item

KQED news footage from c1977/8 featuring an interview with Supervisor Harvey Milk, who reflects on San Franicsco's public image and progressive integration of the gay community into all aspects of city life. At one point he jokes that: "If it's a den of sinners, a lot of people like to come here. Our tourist business is going up every year!" He also discusses cultural stereotypes and scapegoats and how society changes over time. Note: there was a technical fault with the camera's audio recording, when Milk is seen chatting informally with the reporter.
