Chains of Fires: LGBTQ+ History in Mill Valley In-Person

Join us for an opening reception to celebrate our new local history exhibit!

For over 50 years, Pride Month has marked a time to honor community and celebrate culture. Today, the recognition of queerness is thanks to generations of activists and liberation movements, who fought through ostracization, suppression, and, in some instances, criminalization. Locally, the LGBTQ+ community has been overlooked in conversations and writings about Mill Valley’s history. Perhaps due to this specter of discrimination, close-knit communities formed to act as support systems or safe spaces for those that might otherwise feel unloved. Together, these communities flourished into a vivacious subculture of artists, poets, and activists. From Elsa Gidlow in Druid Heights to the Marin Flag Project, these individuals and groups are featured throughout this exhibit – the first of its kind to celebrate and examine Mill Valley’s LGBTQ+ history.
