Schenley Murder Press Conference

Description

This tape contains footage of a press conference with the local gay and lesbian direct-action group of Pittsburgh called CRY OUT! The press conference was organized following the murder of a gay man in the Schenley Park cruising area on September 9 1989. The activists emphasize the likelihood that this murder was a hate crime, and criticize the subsequent increase in police intimidation and public harrasment of gay men in the area.
