GLBT History Museum: We Built a Movement From Books

December 6 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

A panel of creators of queer culture will reminisce about the impetus books gave to the lesbian and gay movement in the 1970s–1980.

The explosion of bookstores, publishing houses, organizational libraries and literature courses was an important component of San Francisco’s struggle for identity and community. In the years between Stonewall and the AIDS epidemic, lesbians and gay men separately and together charted new territory, established a tradition and literally changed and saved lives.

Historian James Van Buskirk will interview gay studies pioneer Jack Collins and groundbreaking feminist publisher and bookseller Carol Seajay.
