Russian Language and 1980s California

Two questions.

1- Not sure if this is a good place, but would anyone be willing to be an on-and-off Russian translator? I need the translations and transliterations of multiple phrases for this long fic I'm writing, and I don't want to rely on online phrasebooks. Anyone?

2- In the gritty 1980s-1990s (like, the underground gay scene, strip clubs/brothels, pimps, etc.), how would the rich people react to said scene and its people? In an around San Francisco. Also, what was San Francisco like then, especially the gay scene and the police department? And what would be a rich/upper-class/upper-middle-class city near San Francisco? Or suburb?
I've tried "1980's gay history," "San Francisco 1980s," "San Francisco gay history," "San Francisco police department history," "rich California cities 1980s," and close cousins of those statement. Please help!

ETA: I've settled on Belvedere, Marin County, California, for the rich family, and Polk Street, San Francisco, California, for the sleazy underground escort strip clubs. Sound good? Also, I STILL really need someone for the Russian help!
