The May 24, 1979 issue of the Blade included a teaser for Pride weekend featuring Linda Glick on the front page. Also featured was a story about the White Night Riots in San Francisco, after a jury imposed a light sentence on Dan White for the murders of Mayor George Moscone and gay city supervisor Harvey Milk.
