Vanguard Revisited Feb 2011

This collection of historical documents and contemporary writings from street youth creates a dialogue about poverty, queerness, drugs, and the police. Vanguard, a grassroots homeless youth group, was founded in 1966 as youth mobilized to combat police harassment, picket discriminatory businesses, and hold same-sex dances in church halls. Vanguard had a significant transgender membership and is the group whose work helped set the stage for the Compton's Cafeteria Riot in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco.
