The Center for Sex and Culture presents:
A Pride Reception in honor of Dr. Ted McIlvenna, recipient of the 2014 Gilbert Baker Pride Founder's award.
Please join us to honor one of San Francisco’s most extraordinary citizens and recipient of the 2014 Gilbert Baker Pride Award!
Now over 80, The Rev. Dr. Ted McIlvenna began activist work on behalf of the LGBT community in 1964 as a founder of The Council on Religion and the Homosexual, the first organization ever to include the word homosexual in its title. He has founded a number of San Francisco cultural and activist institutions such as The Night Ministry, the Council on Religion and the Homosexual, Huckleberry House (for runaway teens, which still exists), Intersection for the Arts, the National Sex Forum, the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality, where both Center for Sex and Culture founders Dr. Carol Queen and Dr. Robert Morgan Lawrence earned their PhDs.
A more in-depth look at his contributions to the community can be found in brief on our facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/events/1431649723764532/
Additionally, Dr. Ted McIlvenna is the subject of a currently in-progress documentary by filmmaker Robert James called THE NIGHT MINISTER -- A Rebellion In 3 Parts, set to wrap in 2015. An advanced clip can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9g_nw_nVN80
The reception will take place after the SF Pride parade on Sunday, June 29 from 3-5pm (longer if we’re having too much fun to leave). Snacks and Drinks will be provided, in addition to the revolutionary presence of the San Francisco Sex Educator vanguard.
Center for Sex & Culture, 1349 Mission between 9th and 10th.
