“…something changed in us very quickly as it became clear that this was not just your usual hometown parade, but the gay community uniting as it was fighting for its civil rights and marching for equality.” Saul Bromberger and Sandra Hoover, Artists’ Statement from “PRIDE Heart of a Movement: The San Francisco Gay & Lesbian Freedom Day Parade 1984-1990”
