80 Turk Street

Join us for the near-50th anniversary of the Compton Cafeteria riots with a screening of the famed documentary Screaming Queens. In 1966, transgender women and drag queens fought police harassment at Compton’s Cafeteria three years before the famous riot at the Stonewall Inn Bar in New York City. The screening will be preceded by a Queer History of the Tenderloin walking tour with Del Seymour explores the landscape and legacy of the Tenderloin as a trans and queer hub in San Francisco. After the screening we will migrate to Aunt Charlie’s for a salon hosted by original screaming queen herself Felicia Elizondo, Annie Danger, and Julie Phelps of CounterPulse to discuss the past, present and future of the Tenderloin over happy hour drinks.
