Early Iowa State University and Ames, Iowa Gay Liberation Photographs: San Francisco, 1977-1979

I took a two week vacation in May 1977 and drove to San Francisco with a friend, Nancy Anne Jenkins. At that time I decided to move here, and I returned exactly a year later, in May 1978. Immediately people from home began to visit, and I discovered others I knew from Ames and the Midwest had already moved here. Soon others would also immigrate here It was a very special time in San Francisco.

I have tried to give credit to people who have helped by providing their cache of photos. If I have neglected anyone or mis-credited anybody, please notify me, as it is an oversight or error, not intentional. Some of these location photographs were taken on a return trip I made to Ames from San Francisco in 1980. The locations were still very similar to the 1970s then. I am told many of these buildings no longer exist.
