Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Hansen lived in San Francisco for one year (1965-66) during an internship with the Adult Youth Project at Glide Foundation, an arm of Glide Memorial Church. During this period he worked with youth in the Tenderloin, including many young gay, lesbian and transgender teens and young adults. This collection consists entirely of photocopies of documents from his own papers, including clippings, a report on the Tenderloin called "The White Ghetto," the text of a sermon, and most importantly, numerous letters he wrote to friends and family about his experiences and his reflections on these activities and the underlying issues they illuminated.
