Description: 

Actuality of a protest by members of the NYC gay community over the filming of William Friedkin's <i>Cruising</i> on August 20, 1979. [Unidentified female protester] reports that the protest successfully blocked the film's crew from shooting on Christopher Street the previous night. Joe Simenyak[sp?] addresses the crowd and slams Mayor Ed Koch and his administration for not issuing any statements about the film. The group marches down Christopher Street to visit the Badlands and Ramrod, two bars that refused to cooperate with the filmmakers, proceeds up West Street to congregate in Sheridan Square, and then marches over to Koch's apartment on Washington Place. Protesters chant "Traitor!", "No more shit!", and "Gay people united will never be defeated!" Bill Wyatt talks to WBAI's David Wynyard about black and white cooperation in the protest. Photojournalist Peter Melillo from the Gay Switchboard talks about police injuring protesters the night before. Sue Cummings reports that one protester was hit by a light bulb thrown from a window.
