Add to my calendar

This June marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, a perfect moment to discuss the status of historic queer sites and queer public history in San Francisco. The creation of San Francisco queer culture is deeply intertwined in urban life — and it has not been immune to the changes in our city.Carving space in the urban landscape has been essential for queer survival, for building community and obtaining political and cultural power, and, quite simply, for finding each other. As some of those essential queer heritage institutions, sites and even whole neighborhoods are erased by hypergentrification, we want to take a moment to reflect on where we are and where we want to go in the future.
