Our monthly After Hours party at the GLBT History Museum celebrates the queer past with dancing, drinks, nibbles and mingling in the galleries after the museum’s regular exhibition hours. This month’s theme, Leather and Fur, will bring together the leather and bear communities, with funds raised at the party supporting the GLBT History Museum’s upcoming exhibition on bear culture and bear cartoonist — beartoonist! — Fran Frisch.

The amazing drag king Alex U. Inn will be hosting, and special guest DJ Gayle Rubin, preeminent queer theorist and historian of the leather scene, will spin tunes from the golden age of the baths, sex clubs, and dungeons of San Francisco.

Event co-sponsored by Bears of San Francisco (BOSF).  Drinks sponsored by 440 Castro and raffle prizes donated by artist Fran Frisch.”
