    It’s better then nothing, however non-profits workers are usually volunteer, but treat them like it’s their own business. I was involved in the early gay rights movement since the early 70s. I knew both Harvey Milk and Mayor Moscone. (Pinknews has used my images of Harvey or Harvey and myself.) The S.F. Gay Historical Society has never returned my emails or calls over too long a period of time. I own a treasure trove of memorabilia and a photo collection of the 70’s of 5 thousand images,slides and negatives. I am now looking for a repository to house them. I would not consider the S.F. Gay Historical Society.

  2. I am going to San Francisco in June so I will definitely visit :)

  3. Jerry, that is very disappointing to read. You must have some extraordinary material from the past. I hope the new museum can be a success because I think people from all over the world will want to visit.

  4. This is delightful news… hurrah!!

    ,,,and thank you PinkNews..

  5. A much needed improvement over the plague of creation museums that keep opening over the States.

  6. Great news.
    I hope a national one gets set up somewhere, most appropriately New York, I think.

    The news about establishing this Museum is very good because the Castro is so well known worldwide, that includes Australia, from where I have traveled to San Francisco several times to stay with friends in the Castro and explore your most wonderful City. G/L History is extremely important and must be preserved for future generations to understand the serious problems still facing the G/L Community. Remember, if future generations cannot learn from history, then history -bad history – may be repeated. Build this Museum into one of world standing by adding suitable.
