Daniel Nicoletta has been a leading chronicler of the LGBT civil rights movement over the last 40 years. His images are a vivid and intimate record of the people who came together to change the world: queens, dykes, transgender people, activists, celebrities, politicos, artists, and their allies.
In 1975, 20-year-old Nicoletta worked at Harvey Milk’s camera store in the Castro District of San Francisco, one of the first gay neighborhoods in the United States. Nicoletta is perhaps best known for his iconic images of Milk, the persuasive, charismatic human rights leader who became one of the first openly gay elected officials in the world.
“The value of Daniel Nicoletta’s work lies in its inerrant service to the history of the LGBT
movement in twentieth century America; forming an invaluable chronicle of a specific time and place. And, most especially: the people who created it.” – Chuck Mobley
LGBT: San Francisco is an essential history and a stunning photographic work that is not to be missed.
