CRH Remembered

The Council on Religion and the Homosexual was the first coalition of religious and homosexual activists to receive widespread visibility in the U.S. At the local level, CRH initiated a number of programs that have served LGBT persons in San Francisco over the years. Within the religious sphere, CRH provided the impetus that moved many leaders to become advocates for LGBT persons. However, CRH appears to be best remembered in the LGBT community of San Francisco for its role in the California Hall incident on January 1, 1965.
