Consuming Queers

In Uncategorized on July 9, 2011 at 8:04 pm

Gerard Koskovich just posted something interesting, over on our Facebook page. He writes, “The records of Old Wives Tales are preserved in the archives of The GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco. The “Consuming Queers” display at the society’s new GLBT History Museum in the Castro District features a revenue-and-expenses chart from the store from 1978–1979.”

A little more information:

GLBT History Museum (San Francisco) ‎”Consuming Queers: The GLBT Marketplace” in “Our Vast Queer Past” documents the emergence of queer consumer capitalism. The background graphic is the 1978-1979 income and expenses chart from Old Wives Tales, a lesbian-feminist bookstore in San Francisco that was in business from 1976 to 1995.
