AUTHOR EVENT! Maggie Scott plus guests: "Still Here - San Francisco"


Still Here San Francisco: Growing up Here, Growing up Queer

Still Here San Francisco brings back some of the most powerful artists and pieces from the past 5 years! Join us for an evening of reading and performance by queer/LGBTQI artists raised in San Francisco and still living in the Bay Area.

Still Here San Francisco  brings together artists and community to explore the experiences of Queer/LGBTQI individuals raised in San Francisco during the 1980s and 1990s in the context of the rise of HIV/ AIDS and currently still living in San Francisco/Bay Area.  Still Here’s narratives of queerness, coming out, sex, loss, AIDS/HIV, memory, legacy, and more stake a claim to San Francisco. They  disrupt the assumption that everyone in San Francisco is from somewhere else and redefine the meaning of home, family, and identity in a “gay mecca.”
