Did You Know?


Anna receives a picture of herself standing in front of Compton's Cafeteria. In 1959, Compton's was a hangout for San Francisco's transgender community. Police and staff made a practice of harassing patrons. Early trans activists picketed the place in July 1966. In August there were two nights of rioting in response to arrests of trans patrons. This was the second known instance of the LGBT community fighting back against oppression in the United States. See more »


Mary Ann and Robert are heading east on Market Street on their way to the airport when they pass Safeway and Mary Ann tells Robert that's where she met Michael. Not true; she met him at the Marina Safeway, which is nowhere near the one at Church and Market. Soon thereafter Mary Ann decides to stay and gets out of the car while Robert presumably continues on to the airport. But the car is now heading west on Market. See more »
