For the first program of the Compton’s 50th Anniversary Series, Cruzin d’Loo (the drag alter-ego of performer Kevin Wisney) gives an hour-long walking tour of the LGBTQ history of the Tenderloin centering on the 1966 Compton’s Cafeteria Riot that took place at the now-famous intersection of Turk and Taylor Streets. The tour returns to the museum at 7:00 p.m. for a kickoff reception. Trans historian and award-winning documentary filmmaker Susan Stryker and original “screaming queen” Felicia Elizondo will speak briefly to mark the occasion. Admission: $5.
