Bio:

Hello! I've been teaching in the Women and Gender Studies department at SFSU since 2007, and I've been a women/gender studies professor since 1994. I'm a historian, and I teach courses on research methods, writing, and feminist and queer theory. I wrote a book about San Francisco's early-twentieth-century queer history called Wide Open Town and another book on queer oral history methods called Bodies of Evidence. I'm currently studying tourism and its relationship to gentrification in SF, and I’ve almost completed writing a book with maps on the gay/queer/trans history of eight San Francisco neighborhoods. Meanwhile, I've been active, over the years, at the GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco. I founded the Historical Society's oral history project in 1992, served as the co-chair of the Archives Committee from 2004-2008, and served two terms on the Board of Directors.
