How are archives and museums both crucial to survival and an aspect of urban development? Moving forward, what roles should public or nonprofit institutions play in questions of queer belonging, historical memory and urban transformation? 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.
