A Groovy, Gay Look at the "Summer of Love"

GLBT Historical Society

Lavender-tinted Glasses: A Groovy, Gay Look at the "Summer of Love." This exhibit highlights the roles of four queers in the making of the Summer of Love: poet Allen Ginsberg, filmmaker Kenneth Anger, philosopher Gavin Arthur and singer Janis Joplin. All of them brought their perspectives as artists, visionaries and sexual outsiders to the uprising; all made a lasting impact on American culture. In addition, the exhibition documents the ways San Francisco's homophile community responded. Curator: Joey Cain


This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about A Groovy, Gay Look at the "Summer of Love" :

Lavender-Tinted Glasses offers “a groovy gay look at the Summer of Love,” in honor of this year’s city-wide celebration of the 50th anniversary of that fateful summer, specifically considering the role of four individuals who were instrumental in the cultural landscape of the time: poet Allen Ginsberg, filmmaker Kenneth Anger, philosopher Gavin Arthur and musician Janis Joplin.
