Marginalized communities have always sought a safe, secure geography to occupy. From the Mormons of 1846 to the Black Panthers of the 60s and 70s, from the back-to-landers of the hippie 60s to the LGBT communities of past and present, the irreducible object of desire has been PLACE.
Come along on a walking tour that traces these stories, then introduces SF's gutsy, tremulous with love, reviled by privilege, and dismissed by complacency mega-solution public policy proposal of 1879 . . . which is relevant as ever today.
