Tracy Baim author of the new book “Barbara Gittings: Gay Pioneer” will be having a discussion & book signing on Wednesday September 2nd at 6P at the James C. Hormel Gay & Lesbian Center of San Francisco Public Library in the Latino Room, Main Library Lower Level. The work of Barbara Gittings in the LGBT movement spanned from the late 1950s until her death in 2007. Her partner in life Kay Lahusen photographed many of the movement’s biggest actions during the 1960’s with more than 270 photos accompany this biography, making it a historical photo album of the movement. Gittings was active in a wide range of pre- & post-Stonewall groups, including the Daughters of Bilitis. Perhaps most importantly Gittings was among the leaders of the push to change the American Psychiatric Association diagnosis of homosexuality as an illness & she was among those pushing the American Library Association to be more inclusive of gays.
Tracy Baim is author of Barbara Gittings” Gay Pioneer & 10 other books on LGBT history, including Obama & the Gays: A Political Marriage & Gay Press, Gay Power. She is co-founder and publisher of Windy City Times newspaper in Chicago. The James C. Hormel Gay & Lesbian Center at the San Francisco Public Library is at 100 Larkin Street in San Francisco, California.
