This June will mark 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 vanishing of San Francisco queer culture is deeply intertwined in urban life, and had 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 sites and, even whole neighborhoods, slip away into hypergentrification propelled by “tech”, we want to take a moment and access where we are at and where we want to be in the future.
