- 1 year ago
Life of Lesbian Luminary & Gender Studies Pioneer Celebrated
On Sept. 30, the SF Commonwealth Club will hold a special tribute to lesbian feminist activist, writer and professor Sally Gearhart, who passed away earlier this year. SDFF audiences know Sally from her show-stopping appearance as a part of the 2019 selection A Great Ride (Deborah Craig, 2018), which documented radical, queer women’s experiences of aging. She is also the subject of a forthcoming documentary Sally, directed by Craig, who will be a featured speaker at the tribute along with her collaborators on the project, writer/editor Ondine Rarey and producer Jörg Fockele. Melanie Nathan, of the African Human Rights Coalition will also speak.
The event is hosted by Michelle Meow, producer/host of KBCW’s “The Michelle Meow Show,” and a member of the Commonwealth Club’s Board of Governors. This event can be attended in-person or online, via a live stream. Tickets are free but require pre-registration.
