The larger forces of urban redevelopment have transformed the waterfront and San Francisco neighborhoods. These forces have had profound effects on communities of color and working-class people. University of California, Santa Cruz, Feminist Studies Professor Marcia Ochoa, Mia Tu Mutch of LYRIC and Causa Justa Housing Rights Campaign Lead Organizer Robbie Clark discuss the relationship between redevelopment and gentrification? How are racial and socioeconomic aspects of redevelopment connected to the gentrification of queer neighborhoods and the displacement of diverse queer populations in the Bay Area? How have these dynamics been navigated and challenged? Free.

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.
