Vintage Castro Street Pix
I found a link to a very amateurish but interesting website called, Uncle Donald's Castro Street, (the url is: http://thecastro.net/index.html#index ). It has some wonderful vintage pictures of 1970's and 80's era San Francisco at the height of the Gay rights movement. I think there's going to be a huge surge of interest for this era of gay history once the new Gus Van Sant bio/pic of Harvey Milk is completed and released. They're starting to shoot this film this week, and it has a great cast: Sean Penn as Milk, and Josh Brolin as his killer, White. This is one of those films that SHOULD be good given the level of talent involved; if it's not, it'll be a sad disappointment to a lot of people. Here's a couple pictures from the Castro site.
