Gay History Moment, Fire at the Everhard Baths 1977

As part of a little research for Pride Week, I ran across this footage of the fire at the "Everhard Baths" (the nickname for the Everard Baths) back in May 1977.  The Everard Baths were a popular gathering lace for gay men since the 1920's.  The fire resulted in several deaths and many injuries.  ironically a fire sprinkler system was about to be installed in the aging structure. The date on the video is incorrect.
