Center for Sex & Culture

tumblr_m97yasjIgD1qjpzcgThe Center for Sex and Culture is a San Francisco non-profit dedicated to providing a community space and library that is welcoming to people across the spectrum of gender, sex, and sexuality diversity. I was a library intern, then social media and web manager, and finally media director for CSC, my time there spanning from 2011 – 2014.

My whole adventure with the Center was jump-started through reading PoMoSexuals and interviewing Carol Queen for a college project in CSC’s new Mission Street space.

I contributed to book and periodical cataloging, website redesign, made regular news and event updates across CSC’s social media platforms, and successfully fundraised $2000 for the Center’s Grace Alley Mural Project. I was Media Director of CSC up until fall 2013 and was a content curator of photography, art, and events for the Center for Sex and Culture blog.

The Grace Alley Mural was eventually painted over due to repeated vandalism, though a thorough documentation of the mural’s progress in photos lives on in my photos. The mural features art by Eddie Colla, Finley Coyl, Amanda Lynn, and Eclair Acuda Bandersnatch.

In 2013, I read “What Does It Mean to Be Genderqueer?” at CSC’s spoken word event A Night of GenderQueer Readings. I am making a return to the Center as a curator for a video show: Just Experimenting, coming June 2nd, 2017.
