Lauren Carley performs her theatrical cabaret, Venus Envy, in honor of gay pride , queer arts and those of us who like live entertainment mixed with our sex and politics Venus Envy brings a chiaroscuro of funny, haunted, star-crossed and playfully invented women to the stage. The political, ironic, and comic songs in Venus Envy originate from the 1920/30s Weimar era, and from the 1930/40s Paris and New York. Carley inhabits an array of characters who fluidly negotiate place, character, gender, sexual preference and stereotype.

Written and performed by Lauren Carley. Directed by Frank Coppola.
Daniel Lockert on piano, Nik Phelps on woodwinds, plus special guests.

Queer History Exhibit
Friday, June 18 – 25 at the mezzanine of the Castro Theater.
Sunday June 27, at the Civic Center Pride Celebration site

This June, for Queer Pride, The Gay and Lesbian Historical Society of  Northern California (GLHS) is excited to curate this unique exhibit.  Sponsored by the Pride Celebration Committee and Frameline, and supported by  the art and museum community of San Francisco, MAKING A CASE FOR COMMUNITY  HISTORY will be more than a routine, one-time exhibit. Instead of GLHS  curating on behalf of the community, GLHS will facilitate the critical  professional archival and exhibition services needed for the community to  direct the collection and self-representation of its own history. The eight  groups featured will be: the Leather Community, the Bears of San Francisco,  the Imperial Court of San Francisco, the Lesbian Feminist Community, the  Transsexual Community, the African-American community, the Latino/a  Community, and Gay American Indians. These eight anchor groups will show  symbolically and literally how the community can make its own case about its  history — and lay a working foundation for all interested queer groups to do  so more fully for years to come. In line with the theme of the Pride Parade this year, “Proud Heritage/Powerful Future,” the  eight museum quality cases being constructed for this event embody how a rescuing of our past is intimately tied to a vision of our future.

This project enjoys the support of Mayor Brown, Supervisors Ammiano, Leno, and Katz, and has the pledge of long-term participation by museum
professionals from the Western Museum Association, the De Young Museum, the  SFMOMA, and the JFK Graduate Museum Science Program.
