Since the 1960s, organized GLBT involvement in government and electoral politics has shaped the landscape of San Francisco. SEIU labor organizer Gabriel Haaland and Andrea Shorter of the San Francisco Commission on the Status of Women discuss how this engagement has related to urban renewal, development and gentrification? What have been some of the positions held by various GLBT politicians and activists, and what kinds of possibilities for living in the city have resulted from GLBT political activism and involvement? 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.
