Clergy and Homosexual Persons Converge in San Francisco

Changing social dynamics led to the interaction of the Rev. Ted McIlvenna and other Glide Urban Center clergy with a number of homosexual persons on the streets of the Tenderloin district of San Francisco in 1963-64. The resultant dialogue and development of relationships between clergy and gay/lesbian persons was unprecedented in its day.
