Special Gay History Tour at Oakland Museum September 28th
The history of the gay rights movement in the Bay Area and throughout the state of California will be explored on a special docent led tour at the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) on Friday, September 28 at 7 p.m.

A selection of artifacts from the museum's permanent collection will be spotlighted in a program that will trace from the early 20th Century to today, touching upon the emergence of sexual identity politics, the overlap of gay liberation with the hippie and beatnik movements, the rise of Harvey Milk and the LGBT community as a political force, and the current drive for gay marriage equality. The tour is included with admission, only $6 after 5pm.

Dedicated to the art, history, and culture of our state, the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA), is often overshadowed by San Francisco's powerhouse DeYoung, MOMA, Academy of Sciences and other museums. But--in addition to permanent collections focused art, history, and nature as seen through a distinctively Californian lens--OMCA steadfastly mounts some of the Bay Area's most intriguing temporaryexhibitions and special programs, such as this month's LGBT tour.
