In honor of the 100th anniversary of Harry Hay's birth, CLAGS and the Harry Hay Centennial Committee will sponsor a weekend conference exploring Hay's life and ideas and the multiple facets of LGBT life that Harry Hay himself pioneered. These aspects will be organized around four major themes: the arts, political activism, spirituality and sexual identities. The conference will feature presentations from scholars, activists and artists all exploring the evolution of LGBT life in the 60+ years since Hay and a small cohort of Californians founded the Mattachine Society.

Facilitated by Steven Watson, cultural historian, and Tim McCarthy, documentary filmmaker.

Harry Hay touched so many of our lives. Some among us knew him well, some had extraordinary encounters, and some had fleeting sightings. Whatever your experience, take a few minutes to record those memories in an oral history interview that could be preserved for future scholars and researches. Answer a few questions about how you encountered Hay, what your experience with him was, and what its impact was on you, and help preserve this slice of the past.
