               Randy Shilts as reporter and Jack Fritscher as photographer together covered the
            Gay Rodeo for the Associated Press and for the San Francisco Chronicle. Shilts’ article
            and Fritscher’s photograph of “Dave Wilson” were published nationally by the AP and in
            the Chronicle, August 6, 1979. Drummer editor Tim Barrus wrote: “In the 1970s, there
            were two gay jobs in San Francisco. Randy Shilts had one [reporter at the Chronicle]; Jack
            Fritscher had the other [editor in chief of Drummer].”
