Program produced by Philip Maldari. This sound portrait of the parade held in San Francisco for the 8th Gay Freedom Day in 1978 includes an excerpt from Harvey Milk talking to KPFK, parade-goers interviewed about Anita Bryant and the Briggs Initiative. This recording also includes highlights of the parade, interviews with passersby and parade participants, and local GLBT groups such as the Golden Gate Business Association.
This program won the Corporation for Public Broadcasting award for Best Local Programming in the Special Interest Category in 1979. It aired the Tuesday after the parade on Kris Welch’s morning program.
KPFA Folio notes, June 1979, p.1: While pleased to have won the award, [Maldari] does not feel very comfortable with the 'special interest' category. "What is special interest today is general interest tomorrow."
