Out of the Past: Celebrating LGBT History in San Francisco took place in the City by the Bay earlier this month, bringing together nearly 500 attendees who gathered at the historic Old Mint for a look at San Francisco’s unique queer history and culture. Several important speakers were on hand, including Zoe Dunning and Stuart Milk (nephew of Harvey Milk), plus performance groups such as Cheer San Francisco and the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus. Panels from the AIDS Quilt were on display, and proceeds from the evening benefited FlipSide, an arm of the S.F. Museum and Historical Society dedicated to engaging youth, as well as Project Open Hand, a nonprofit that provides meals to seniors and ill people. Take a look at photos from the event, courtesy of Clayton Hill, on the following pages.
