The first time I went to Oil Can Harry’s was in the fall of 1974. At that time, I was the co-president of the Gay People’s Union (GPU) at San Fernando Valley State College (now CSUN). As co-president, I organized social events and outings for our members. Oil Cans had the largest dance floor of all the gay bars in the Valley and those of us over 21-years old went often. Disco was king (or should I say queen) and Oil Cans provided hours of care-free dancing in a gay-accepting environment.
