Join us in a close-up show-and-tell with San Francisco and queer history through the lens of identification photographs. Collections on view from the San Francisco History Center archives will include San Francisco Police Department mug books and World War I Alien Enemy Registration Affidavits. For the exhibition San Francisco IDentities, most of the passports, licenses and club membership cards were pulled from James C. Hormel LGBTQIA Center archives. Learn more about the archives these artifacts were pulled from which include Randy Shilts Papers, Barbara Cameron Papers and Dorrwin Jones Papers (recently opened for research).   

This exclusive program takes place within the San Francisco History Center. The behind-the-scenes event is led by our knowledgeable photo archivist. Photography is welcomed and encouraged during the program. 

Companion exhibits: San Francisco IDentities and Artists in the Archives, on view March 11 – June 8, Main Library, 6th Floor 

Learn more about local history.

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.

Learn from world-class designers, artists and experts in their fields.
