Harry Hay

Out in the Bay host Eric Jansen speaks with Joey Cain, curator of the San Francisco Public Library exhibit "Radically Gay: The Life of Harry Hay,"  which honors the centennial of gay rights pioneer and labor activist Harry Hay's birth.

Gay rights pioneer and labor activist Harry Hay is being honored with an exhibit now on display at San Francisco’s public library celebrating the 100th anniversary of his birth.  He was a labor advocate, teacher and early leader in the LGBT rights movement, known for, among other things, founding the Radical Faeries in the late 1970s and the Mattachine Society -- the first sustained political gay rights group in the United States --  in the early 1950s.
