Download the full-sized image of I Am A Boy

A pink circular button that reads "I AM A BOY" from the Glade Nightclub in Honolulu, Hawaii. According to the Queer Music Heritage website: "Above, I know in the 60's in San Francisco you could be arrested for appearing like you intended to be take for a female, so to prevent arrests, patrons of the Black Cat carried a 'I'm a Boy' sign. Perhaps it was similar in Hawaii."
