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.
