GLBT - TWO-SPIRIT VOICES: RETURNING TO THE CIRCLE
|A new exhibition at the GLBT Historical Society Museum celebrating the 20th anniversary of Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirits, an organization committed to activism and service to the two-spirit and ally communities of the San Francisco Bay Area.
Curators Roger Kuhn, Amelia Vigil and Ruth Villaseñor focus on four main themes: gay and two-spirit pride, the annual BAAITS Two-Spirit Powwow, indigenous medicine and responses to HIV/AIDS, and two-spirit meaning within indigenous communities. Drawing on regalia and textiles, medicines and herbs, and photography and video on loan from community members, as well as materials recently donated to the GLBT Historical Society archives, the exhibition highlights the resiliency of two-spirit people.
The opening reception will feature brief remarks by the curators. Light refreshments will be served.
