Queer Before It Was A Theory: Gavin Artur and the Circles of Sex
Thursday Sep 14 7:00pm-9:00pm in San Francisco
Based on original research, Joey Cain will present the astounding story of bisexual adventurer, utopian, philosopher and astrologer Gavin Arthur (1901­-1972). The grandson of U.S. president Chester A. Arthur and the son of a mining millionaire, Gavin Arthur fled his privileged upbringing in the 1920s to take up outsider causes and bohemian pursuits. He frequented 20th-century homosexual emancipationists, Irish liberation fighters, leading sexologists and avant-garde culture-makers, ending his days in San Francisco as a philosophical grandfather of the hippies.

In this slideshow presentation, Joey will look at the many friends, lovers, and queer pursuits that Gavin encountered in his multifaceted life way before queer was a theory.
