Dance Functions

Private dances were important events in the homosexual community in San Francisco in the mid-1960s. Touching or dancing was generally not allowed in homosexual bars. Dances organized in private halls became important social outlets as well as frequent fund raisers. Sometimes these were elaborate costume affairs.
