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.

Radical Faerie Heart Circle

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Free of charge and open to all, the Heart Circle was the centerpiece of Hay's teachings over the last decades of his life and remains a central principle of the Radical Faerie community.  Hay learned the circle process from his years in San Juan Pueblo, Colorado, and used it to build community, to govern through consensus and to discover our true essence as "a separate people whose time has come".  Everyone is invited to participate in the Heart Circle by speaking "from the heart" as the talisman, or talking stick, is passed around the circle.  Speaking is not mandatory.

Open to the public, free of charge.  This will be held in Room 101.

Sunday September 30, 2012 1:00pm - 4:00pm EDT
