Real Classy 

Wednesday, Jan 2 2008
The term "homosexual agenda" is, in many cases, funny. It's mostly funny-peculiar, but in the face of a realistic conversation such as "Class and Power in Queer SF," it's also sort of funny-ha-ha. See, in spite of what social conservatives often imply, not all gay people want the same thing – some want to be able to visit their spouses in the hospital, and some want health care. Others, just as right wing Christians imagine, would like to smash the state. Lumping all those people together would be ridiculous. Ha-ha! The panel discussion highlights how different people's lives are within the LGBT community, with a focus on the fact that some are rich and some are not. Expect opinions on organizations like And Castro For All and Gay Shame, Log Cabin Republicans, and on the everyday life of transgendered locals. Poets Meliza Bañales and Solidad de Costa, circus performer Keith Hennessy, and writer Michelle Tea also examine gender, age, and geography as they affect queer life in San Francisco.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
