Flowers left for Glenn Burke
Saw the premiere of "Out", the new documentary about Glenn's life, on Comcast Sports last night. I brought back a lot of memories. I remember that Glenn was one of the biggest celebrities in the Castro District in the early 80's. Everyone seemed to know him and like him. He was a regular at the Pendulum bar on 19th Street. I did not know him well, other than to say "hi" in passing from time to time. I truly looked up to him because he dispelled the myth that gay men could not compete at the highest levels of professional sports. I think many of us took his courage for granted back then. I'm glad to see he is being remembered with this documentary.
