I had the pleasure of meeting Gary Freeman, curator of the Fair Oaks Project, a few years ago when an exhibit was shown at Highway’s performance space during their Ecce Lesbo - Ecce Homo queer performance festival. He’s done an excellent job of preserving and sharing a disappeared part of LGBTQ history. You can read more about the history of the project (and where to purchase the book) at the Fair Oaks website.

Images such as those shown here will be exhibited at the Leslie-Lohman Museum in mid July.
