One of our favorites in capturing the queer cultural history of San Francisco in the ’70s and ’80s. Marilyn’s 2013 interview with former Cockettes member Dolores De Luce. Her memoir, “My Life, A Four-Letter Word: Confessions of a Counter-Culture Diva,” made Amazon’s Top 20. It’s an intimate, honest look back at gay life in the city during its radical heyday. Friends with Divine and Sylvester, a lover to many gay men, and witness to the devastation of AIDS, Dolores is a survivor with great stories to tell. Thursday, October 22, 2015 at 7pm Pacific.
Take a trip back to the ‘70s with San Francisco author Mark Abramson and host Marilyn Pittman. His memoir, “Sex, Drugs, and Disco” chronicles the story of gay men flooding into the Castro from all over the country to find more freedom. A time of cheap drinks, cheap sex, lots of drugs, and penicillin trucks. Another chapter in the history of gay San Francisco as Pride month begins. Out In The Bay, Thursday June 5th at 7pm.
