A classic of genderqueer militancy, Never Again! was created by a San Francisco collective, Too Much Graphics, in response to the campaign against the Briggs Initiative, a 1978 California ballot measure that would have banned gay and lesbian teachers from public schools. According to designer Larry Hermsen and fellow collective member Michael Starkman, “The people that were coordinating the speakers for public events against the Briggs Initiative did not want sissy men to participate, so we made our posters as a way to contribute to the efforts against the initiative. The pink triangle on your poster may have been the first widely disseminated use of that symbol in the United States. And the graphic style … anticipates the graphics for ACT UP that followed 10 years later.”

Hermsen adds, “I remember taking the poster to a lesbian-owned bookstore in Oakland, and they thought they needed to know if [the model was] a man or woman. I wouldn’t tell them, but they sold it anyway. Those were the days.”
