This year’s June pride month marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in New York, the widely accepted start of the LGBTQ rights movement. But LGBTQ activism began even sooner in the U.S., with similar riots and demonstrations in San Francisco. We’ll talk about that history of activism before and after Stonewall with historian Marc Stein, and hear what that legacy looks like in present-day San Francisco with co-founder of Compton’s Transgender Cultural District, Honey Mahogany.


Marc Stein, author, "The Stonewall Riots: A Documentary History"; professor of History, San Francisco State University; vice chair, GLBT Historical Society Board of Directors

Honey Mahogany, co-founder, Compton's Transgender Cultural District; co-owner, The Stud
