Anybody have a date for this? I’m thinking 80s by the jeans.
I found this essay that discusses collective organizing around anti-Asian discrimination and targeted hate-crimes in the Castro Valley that includes a discussion of the beating of Frank and Melvin Toy in 1991. However it doesn’t discuss the bars at all so it might be happening in a similar moment but not precipitated by the same event.
