BLAST FROM THE PAST

WATCH: Pride Parades In The 70s Had A Lot More Beards, Badassery

You may have seen the work of gay documentary filmmaker Charles Roseberry in the opening Castro Street sequence of Gus Van Sant’s Milk. But he also took a ton of footage of pride parades during the 70s with his 8 mm camera and now a friend of his has edited it all together into a colorful 40-minute time capsule here for your historic voyeuristic pleasure. Take a few minutes to relive the songs and sights of San Francisco Pride—it’s chock full of rainbow clowns, choreographed marching bands, Anita Bryant posters, sacrelicious crucifixions, bearded leather daddies and spangly, hot disco fabulousness. Makes us almost wanna party like it was 1979!
