Women and Gender Studies Professor Nan Alamilla Boyd, Raquel Gutierrez and Don Romesburg explore what it means to claim GLBT homelands. How does this occupation relate to the pursuit of "safe space"? What kinds of spaces of belonging and safety have existed historically for diverse queer people? How have they been contested and policed? How have they changed over time? Free.

Event extras: 

The GLBT History Museum’s 2014-15 Special Program Series, The G Spot: Gentrification, Transformation and Queer San Francisco, tackles how the history of GLBT belonging and marginalization has been intertwined with the city’s processes of urban renovation. From September 2014 through March 2015, the GLBT History Museum will host monthly programs to delve into this timely concern.

Series curated by Women and Gender Studies Professor Nan Alamilla Boyd, Raquel Gutiérrez and Don Romesburg. The series is funded, in part, by a grant from SF State’s Office of Research and Sponsored Programs.
