Queer Cultural Center - Gay community fighting for their rights

"Founded in 1993, Qcc is a multiracial community-building organization that fosters the artistic, economic and cultural development of San Francisco's LGBT community. We implement our mission by operating programs that commission and present Queer artists, that promote the development of culturally diverse Queer arts organizations and that document significant Queer arts events taking place in San Francisco." This is a great initiative and I'm amazed by the way gay culture finds different ways to fight for their rights. There is still lots of prejudice, stigma and misunderstanding and some people still consider homosexuality as a disease. We cannot forget that homosexuality was considered a mental disease till 1973. Visit the site of the Queer Cultural Center. Click at the picture that depicts the Hal Fischer's Gay Semiotics, 1977, and understand the meaning of handkerchief blue or red placed on the right or left and more.

Thanks for this info, Ana, very much needed - unbelievably. Hard to imagine people still have issues with gender. Maybe it's not that, maybe it's what they imagine people are doing in bed that makes them so angry at queerfolk. It's not the gender preference at all! It's their unimaginative little minds.

Yes!
And if you start explaining the physiological way of pleasure during homosexual sex they don't want to hear.
But Gay culture is really doing a good fight!
