What is the history of LGBTQ involvement in party politics in San Francisco? How has the community’s participation in electoral politics served the LGBTQ movement? How does it serve us now? The second in the GLBT Historical Society’s “Fighting Back” program series, this multigenerational community forum featuring panelists from local LGBTQ party-affiliated clubs along with former elected officials will explore contemporary issues in LGBTQ electoral politics in a historical context and in light of contemporary developments.
