Occupation of urban space is never done on neutral ground. In the Bay Area, local struggles to claim, defend and produce different kinds of sites for GLBT possibility have long been central to the urban landscape. What are the effects of such challenges around territory? Are there some ways to sort through them that are more just than others? Anna Conda of the Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club and Causa Justa Executive Director Maria Poblet lead the discussion. 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.
