The James C. Hormel Gay & Lesbian Center of San Francisco Public Library is presenting three fabulous free Pride programs in June 2015. The first takes place on
Wednesday, June 3rd at 6:00P with “Artistic, Colorful & Unconventional: A Visual Tour of San Francisco's Queer Scene”. Focusing on the important role played by the venerable San Francisco Art Institute & chronicling its rich history of nearly 15 decades this presentation covers LGBTQ artists from interior decorator Edward Searles who donated the Mark Hopkins mansion at the top of Nob Hill to be used as an art school & gallery to the photography department's Minor White to performance artists Jerome Caja & Arturo Galster. This entertaining & informative visual talk by SFAI librarian & archivist Jeff Gunderson & former SFAI & SFPL library staffer Jim Van Buskirk explores many more unconventional San Francisco LGBT iconic characters including faculty such as Jerry Burchard & James Broughton, alumni like Bernice Bing, Catherine Opie, Win Ng, Annie Leibowitz, Jess & cultural fellow travelers including the Cockettes, David Dashielle & Martin Wong. It takes place in Koret Auditorium in the Main Library on the lower level.
