Reminder: 1964: The Year San Francisco Came Out at GLBT History Museum @ Fri Jul 18, 2014 7pm - 9pm (Queer Things)

1964: The Year San Francisco Came Out at GLBT History Museum

Fifty years ago, an infamous LIFE magazine article catapulted San Francisco into national consciousness as the "gay capital" of America. Titled "Homosexuality In America," the article represented tensions between the larger culture's notions of queerness and what was emerging into open view in San Francisco.

The article included a photo of the interior of the Tool Box, one of the city's first leather bars, which opened in 1962.

Join us at the GLBT History Museum on Friday, July 18, 7-9 p.m. for the opening reception for "1964: The Year San Francisco Came Out," an exhibition that celebrates the pivotal moment when queer people began to define themselves on their own terms.

It does so by exploring the powerful convergence of events and people -- both local and national, queer and straight -- that turned what could have been a shameful outing into an irrevocable, determined stepping out of the closet.

The exhibition is curated by community historian Paul Gabriel.
