GLBT Historical Society Reunion: Making History virtual gala

Miss Major

History Makers Award

Miss Major is a Black, transgender elder and activist who has fought for nearly 50 years to create a better world for her trans and gender-nonconforming community. Major is a veteran of the infamous Stonewall Riots, a former sex worker and a survivor of Dannemora Prison and Bellevue Hospital's "queen tank." Her global legacy of activism is rooted in her own experiences, and she continues her work to uplift transgender women of color, particularly those who have survived incarceration and police brutality.

Pamela Peniston History Makers Award

Pamela Peniston is a founding member and artistic director of the Queer Cultural Center (Qcc). Pamela has provided visionary leadership for Qcc's iconic program, the National Queer Arts Festival; commissioned generations of LGBTQ artists and artists of color; and provided opportunities for them to discover their voices and connect with their communities. Pamela and Qcc have mentored and inspired queer artists who have become leaders, and changed the cultural landscape of queer arts across the nation.

Dr. Maggi Rubenstein History Makers Award

Maggi Rubenstein is a bisexual activist who co-founded BiPOL and the Bay Area Bisexual Network, as well as three major sex-education institutions in San Francisco: Glide Memorial Church's National Sex Forum, the San Francisco Sex Information Hotline, and the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality. Maggi was an active member of the Harvey Milk Democratic Club for many decades and has appeared on local and national television speaking out on bisexual, transgender, lesbian, gay and queer issues and for sex-worker rights.

Juanita MORE! Willie Walker Founders Award

Juanita MORE! is a denizen of the limelight. For almost three decades, the tireless hostess has blitzed San Francisco with high glamour, drag irreverence, danceable beats, culinary delectables, political activism and a philanthropic heart that has illuminated the entire city, and has helped to raise over $600,000 for some of San Francisco's most impactful organizations.

Gerard Koskovich Clio Award

Gerard Koskovich is a public historian and rare-book dealer. A founding member of both the GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco and the Collectif Archives LGBTQI in Paris, who has been active in the movement to create LGBTQ archives and museums for nearly four decades.
