50 Years of Pride (Online Photography Exhibition)
In 1970, a small band of protesters marched down Polk Street, starting the summer tradition of San Francisco Pride — one of the largest annual LGBTQ+ gatherings in the world. To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of this event, the GLBT Historical Society culled through archives to put together an online photography exhibition. It documents how Pride has evolved from “a largely white, male, middle-class gay gathering” to a more inclusive celebration, curators write in the accompanying historical survey.
