    Scope and Content of Collection

    This collection documents the early efforts of the gay health movement. It contains materials related to the Gay Health Project, which was established in 1975 by the San Francisco Health Department's City Clinic. This innovative program was designed to more effectively reach San Francisco's gay community. Materials include a description of, and press releases about, the project; news clippings about layoffs of project workers; brochures, flyers and information sheets about sexually transmitted diseases, sexual enrichment, mental health and social services for gay people; and information about the gay health movement and homosexuality and public health. There is also a copy of a "San Francisco Survival Manual," produced by the Page Street Survival House with assistance from volunteers at SIR and Vector Magazine. Other local organizations with brochures in the collection include the Whitman-Radclyffe Foundation, the National Sex Forum, Parents of Gay People, the Center for Special Problems and Operation Concern.
