Come out and soak up some Gay Sunshine with Haley this week, as they traipse through the history of this unique little newspaper. Haley outlines some of the paper’s history with Berkeley’s Gay Liberation Front, the Gay Sunshine Press, and the long-time editor Winston Leyland. Or, skip to the end and listen to some iconic personal ads from Gay Sunshine in the 1970s.
As always, music by Omar Nassar.
