Making history: Reclaiming LGBT lives through fiction and drama

Saturday, September 12 at 1 p.m.
New Conservatory Theatre Center
25 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco

golddiggers-150[1]We’re pleased to be a community sponsor of a presentation by Irish writer Hilary McCollum (Golddigger, Life and Love: Lesbian Style), who will discuss the role of fiction and drama in reclaiming the hidden histories of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans communities. “Every community needs its history,” McCollum says. “But gaps remain, especially for groups who had less access to recording their stories. Fiction and drama can fill these gaps. In doing so, storytellers can help both lesbian and gay people and the wider community to understand themselves and the history that has shaped them.” The event is free.
