SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. –Thirty-two years ago, a band of queer history enthusiasts created the GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco to uncover and preserve stories of the LGBTQ past. Six years ago, the society opened the doors of the GLBT History Museum in the Castro, the first stand-alone museum of its kind in the United States.
To celebrate these milestones and to raise funds for a planned museum makeover, the society is holding a double-anniversary bash in the galleries after the museum closes on the evening of Friday, March 17
. “Turning 32, Turning Six, Turning Up the Music” is set for 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
at the GLBT History Museum at 4127 18th St. in the Castro.
Drag stars VivvyAnne ForeverMORE and Alex U. Inn will join renowned theater artist and comedian Marga Gomez as hosts and entertainers. DJ Marke B will play cool queer hits from the past four decades. Drinks and light refreshments will be served.
“Proceeds from the party will help us remodel the museum entry, reception desk and shop, all of which are showing signs of wear,” says Marke B, who also serves on the GLBT Historical Society board of directors. “With a full-on makeover, the museum will be able to offer an even more fabulous welcome to visitors from around the world.”
Tickets to the anniversary party are $15 in advance via Eventbrite. Tickets also will be available for $20 at the door. For more information on the museum, visit www.glbthistory.org.
