The Stud is a queer bar in San Francisco with a long and storied history. It was founded in 1966, the same year as the historic Compton’s Cafeteria Riot in the Tenderloin, three years before the Stonewall uprising in New York. It survived the AIDS crisis, the dot com boom, and bust and boom again — all the while building a reputation as a quirky, welcoming place for all visitors.

While it may seem like quilting is just for grandmas, it has a long history all over the world and it’s a thriving art form today. Here in the Bay Area, the African American Quilt Guild of Oakland’s 80 members meets monthly to work on personal projects, as well as bigger art pieces.


San Francisco-based choreographers Kat Cole and Eric Garcia are the directors of Detour Dance, a company that creates multidisciplinary performance and film with an emphasis on social justice.
