New Year for the GLBT Museum in SF

Among the many celebrations this season, the museum of San Francisco’s GLBT Historical Society marks its first year of operation. From the website:

“Often referred to as San Francisco’s ‘queer Smithsonian,’ the GLBT Historical Society houses one of the world’s largest collections of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender historical materials. The society’s new GLBT History Museum is the first full-scale, stand-alone museum of its kind in the United States.”


“GLBT museum celebrates fight for social justice.” Steven Short, KALW-FM
