Handbill advertising a drag show at the legendary Finocchio’s, a nightclub and bar, beginning as a speakeasy in 1929, by 1936 the club had relocated and began to program female impersonation shows. While not a strictly gay club, Finocchio’s was one of many throughout San Francisco that provided a safe space for gays and lesbians as well as racial minorities to congregate. A wonderful relic from San Francisco’s queer past.
