Queer Photo Journalists Document Community History At SF Public Library

Local drag icon Heklina at the Castro Theater, 2005 - RICK GERHARTER

For many years, Rick Gerharter and Jane Philomen Cleland have been the photographers-in-residence at Bay Area Reporter, San Francisco’s venerable LGBT weekly. They’ve covered scores of events: Pride Parades, street fairs, political rallies, openings at the Castro Theater, and much more. Their work now stands as an historical document of the queer community as it existed over the past several decades.

Gerharter and Cleland have now joined forces. Their new photo exhibit Daily and Transcendent: 25+ Years of Queer Photo Journalistic Portraits , is now underway in the Jewett Gallery on the lower level of the San Francisco Main Library. The show will remain on exhibition through Jan. 3, 2016.
