Girl Who “Wed” Another Girl

Pre-1950 Gay, Lesbian and Transgender Marriages in the United States

women who wed eachother Most San Franciscans are aware of the recent California Supreme Court decision allowing same sex couples to wed legally. What Bay Area residents may not know is that many gay, lesbian and transgender couples wed in the United States prior to 1950. This exhibit draws attention to several anatomically-same sex California couples who married and lived as husband and wife in defiance of legal and social conventions.

Exhibition: From October 18 through December 18, 2008, Main Library, Third Floor, General Collections and Humanities Center, 100 Larkin Street (at Grove)
