San Francisco has long been known for its groundbreaking LGBTQ leather and BDSM community. In conjunction with the new “South of Market: San Francisco’s Leather Scene” display in the “Queer Past Becomes Present” exhibition at the GLBT History Museum’s Main Gallery, curator Greg Pennington will facilitate a discussion about the leather scene from the 1960s to the present and beyond. Prominent leather community members, authors, and scholars will take part, including Gayle Rubin, Jordy Tackitt-Jones, Rajat Dutta and Race Bannon. A social hour with light refreshments will follow.
