Celebrating Fabulous/Activist Bay Area Lesbians with Disabilities: A 40 Year Retrospective

9/18/10 - 11/21/2010

Main Library

Skylight Gallery - 6th Floor

100 Larkin St.

For the past 40 years, San Francisco Bay Area lesbians with disabilities have been at the forefront of political, artistic and cultural change.  Despite these significant accomplishments, most of this history has not been documented in any archive and is in danger of being lost.  This exhibition will feature photographs, a memorial quilt, archival materials and more that demonstrate the innovative contributions by disabled lesbians in the areas of art, dance, politics, civil rights and access.

This exhibition is on view in the Skylight Gallery on the Sixth Floor and in the James C. Hormel Gay & Lesbian Center on the Third Floor of the Main Library.
