Klein organized the "Moon Over Miami" event in 1977 to benefit the Miami Gay Support Committee's fight against Anita Bryant's
anti-homosexual campaign. The success of the benefit led to a few other fundraising events for the anti-Briggs Initiative
(a.k.a. No On 6) campaign. Klein also collected additional materials related to gay rights events from 1977-1979.
Allen Klein was born in New York, and attended Hunter College and Yale Drama School. He worked as an art director and scenic
designer for CBS-TV in New York. He moved to the Haight District in San Francisco and established a silk screen business called
The Works. He was a member of a gay fathers group in the 1970s.
