THREE BAY AREA CULTURAL ORGANIZATIONS JOIN TOGETHER TO CELEBRATE PRIDE MONTH IN JUNE

World News: . []

Three Bay Area cultural organizations – California Historical Society (CHS), The Contemporary Jewish Museum (CJM), and Oakland Museum of California (OMCA)– are joining together to celebrate PRIDE month with a wide range of programs at each institution, including exhibitions, a lecture series, special programming, and events to help tell the unique stories of the LGBTQA community and shine a light on its historical importance to the region, state, and nation.   

This is the first time these three organizations have worked together to promote special programming, also complementing two ongoing exhibitions focused on LGBTQA communities: at The CJM, and at OMCA, . Over the weekend of June 22–23, members of each organization will receive reciprocal access to all three instititutions.

The programming includes a lecture series held every Tuesday evening during PRIDE month beginning at 6 pm at the CHS galleries at 678 Mission Street featuring authors, archivists, photographers, filmmakers, and historians. The lecture topics include a panel discussion (June 7) a talk about (June 11) with award-winning scholar and filmmaker Susan Stryker; a film screening and discussion of (June 18); and a presentation on (June 25).

In addition to its exhibition, (on view through August 11), which explores many of the untold narratives of California's LGBTQA communities through contemporary art and history, will also host special events and film screenings during PRIDE month. This includes, among other programming, on June 7 that features (6-7 pm) and (7:30 pm);  on June 14, a powerful conversation about the history of queer movie-making and the absence of queer stories from mainstream cinema; and on June 15, a multigenerational discussion on transgender rights and policies to help us imagine a safe and equitable queer future. 

During the San Francisco PRIDE parade on June 30, staff members from each of the three institutions, in partnership with several other Bay Area cultural institutions, will march in the parade together as part of Museums with Pride.
