Queerness, Activism, & the Mission—Past to Present is a lecture and walking tour that will contextualize Gray Area within its home in San Francisco’s Mission District. The lecture portion will be brief; the lion’s share of the session will be on the streets of the neighborhood.
The workshop will address the theme of Worlding Protocol through a lens of queerness, Mission-based activism, and the intersections between the two. The walking tour will highlight lost queer spaces, murals, sites of current and former activism, and other features of the Calle 24 Cultural District.
Following the workshop, our host Win Mixter will continue the conversation at an informal happy hour on the patio at nearby lesbian-owned Casements Bar (2351 Mission Street) from 6–7PM. Please note that this event is not an official part of the tour and drinks/ food are not included.
Date: Saturday, October 23, 2021
