August is Transgender History Month in San Francisco. Let's celebrate the transgender activists who paved the way for all us to be more free with two acclaimed films.

Happy Birthday, Marsha! is a film about iconic transgender artist and activist, Marsha "Pay it No Mind" Johnson, and her life in the hours before she ignited the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City.

Not Rated, 14min., 2017

Screaming Queens: The Riot at Compton's Cafeteria tells the little-known story of the first known act of collective, violent resistance to the social oppression of queer people in the United States - a 1966 riot in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood, three years before the famous gay riot at New York's Stonewall Inn.

Not Rated, 56 min., 2005


Gather, share knowledge and celebrate our unique identities at the queerest library ever. 

For more resources, the James C. Hormel LGBTQIA Center is the gateway to the Library’s broader collections documenting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and asexual history and culture, with a special emphasis on the San Francisco Bay Area.


This program is sponsored by Friends of the San Francisco Public Library.
