“A free, really high quality photo-essay magazine. Fabulous!”Stephen Fry. British actor, writer and film maker
by Daniel Nicoletta
LGBT: San Francisco is the first book dedicated to photographer Daniel Nicoletta’s archive of powerful images from the burgeoning lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender mecca that was San Francisco in the 1970s through its ongoing journey to the present. Nicoletta has been a leading chronicler of the LGBT civil rights movement over the last 40 years. His images are a vivid and intimate record of the people who came together to change the world: queens, dykes, transgender people, activists, celebrities, politicos, artists and their allies.
