Dancing in the Dragon's Jaws: Gay San Francisco, 1985-1988

Event detail
 
In this exhibit,  photographs by Thomas Alleman celebrate San Francisco’s gay community in the mid-eighties.  They show a moment in San Francisco’s social history when the first wave of the AIDS epidemic crashed onto the Castro. These photos chronicle a blizzard of protests and demonstrations, vigils and marches and sit-ins, as the community struggled for social and political recognition of the crisis. But this exhibit also shows the parties and bar-scenes, drag shows and Halloween evenings and the artists who were creating a home-grown, alternate gay culture that spoke directly to the experiences and aspirations of Castro audiences with life affirming joy.
