Since the radical gay youth group Vanguard called for "street power" in the 1960s, some LGBT activists and artists have demanded accountability for the violence and displacements of San Francisco's processes of gentrification and marginalization. This is the "Pop-Up Gay Bar: Ghosts of Gentrification Crawl" event. $5 suggested donation.

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.
