>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
CounterPULSE | 1310 Mission Street San Francisco, CA
Harry Hay was a co-founder of the Mattachine Society, participant in the San Francisco General Strike of 1934, organizer of the first Radical Faerie Gathering. Harry Hay was at the heart of arts, activism, spirituality and sexual identities in the 20th century.
Learn about this amazing man and discuss his legacies today. With Will Roscoe, editor of “Radically Gay: Gay Liberation in the Words of its Founder–Harry Hay” (Beacon Press: 1996), and Joey Cain, curator of the new exhibit on Harry Hay at the Main SF Public Library, opening April 26.
These talks are meant as an antidote to historical amnesia, to change the climate of critical discussion in San Francisco, and as a place to meet and talk unmediated by corporations, official spokespeople, religion, political parties, or dogma. We are grateful to the City Lights Foundation for helping make these Talks happen.
All events are FREE (donations appreciated) and on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. (not the first Wednesday) until May 2012.
