1975- George Moscone, a liberal with a pro-gay voting record, is elected mayor of San Francisco by 3000 votes.  The margin is small enough that Moscone can credit San Francisco's prominent gay community with giving him the win.  The following year will see the first gay elected official, Harvey Milk, as a city supervisor.  At the same time, a backlash is brewing.  In 1977, Dan White will speak against "social deviates" to get elected in his district, & five gay businesses will be bombed.
