The US's first gay museum in San Francisco's Castro district showcases a variety of items ranging from Harvey Milk's pink-framed sunglasses to manuscripts and sex toys.

The 1,600-square-foot museum, which opened Wednesday, chronicles the evolution of what organisers call the liberation of the gay, bisexual and transgender community.

Milk's sunglasses displayed in the LGBT History Museum are a tribute to the late San Francisco supervisor, who was the first elected openly gay politician in California.

LGBT Historical Society executive director Paul Boneberg told the San Francisco Chronicle the society has a five-year lease for a formerly empty storefront.



The society is relying on donations and volunteers to keep the museum open.
