You Gotta Fight for Your Right to Party; Dedication to those Fighting for SF Eagle

by Accidental Bear


SAN FRANCISCOA popular bar in San Francisco is about to change ownership, but patrons at the venerable establishment weren’t taking the move sitting down.

The Eagle Tavern at 12th Street and Harrison is one of the city’s older gay bars and the gay community is furiously rallying to save it. About a hundred supporters gathered on the steps of City Hall on Tuesday afternoon to fight the bar’s closure.

The concern many longtime patrons and employees at the bar have is that when it reopens under new ownership, the bar won’t cater to the gay community.

One patron said the bar has provided a safe haven for him.

“The Eagle is what kept me alive,” said Glendon Hyde. “In my teens, I tried to commit suicide twice being from a Christian family.”
