History Lessons in Hooking Up Tonight at the GLBT History Museum
For a good time, call...
Tax forms, the New York Times crossword, Rubik’s cube, the enduring popularity of Marmaduke– some things in this world are hard for to wrap our heads around. One thing that mankind has always been good at is figuring out, however, is how to reach out and touch someone.
Tonight, the GLBT Historical Society is hosting a panel on how queers have been feeling things out all these years called Queer Sex and Technology: Hooking Up From the 1940’s to the Present. From heavy breathing on the party line to sloppy ship yard swap meets to the clatter of midnight key boards, when folks are hard-up they’ve been making it happen any which way they can.
True, some of us have more “field work” under their belts than others, but when it comes to social anthropology you can never do too much research. We may have all started out passing notes in class, but we’ve come a long way, babies.
Featured panelists will be author/ Cal historian Martin Meeker, queer theorist/ Cal Professor Juana Maria Rodriguez and writer/ Huffington Post contributor Oscar Raymundo.
