Remembering Gayle

I first met Gayle when I was working at the Deaf Gay and Lesbian Center back in the early 90’s. She’d come to an event we’d sponsored, complete in full leather attire. When the event was over, she offered to stay and help me clean up. While we cleaned, I learned she was looking for a new place to live and I mentioned that I’d seen a vacancy sign just a block down from my apartment on Market Street in the Castro.
