Join author Sarah Boyer as she talks about her work as the oral historian at the Cambridge Historical Commission and her new book “Coming Out, Becoming Ourselves: Lesbian Stories from the Boston Daughters of Bilitis.”

Founded in San Francisco in 1955, the Daughters of Bilitis was the first lesbian civil and political rights organization in the country. It was initially conceived as a social club for San Francisco lesbians with the aim of providing an alternative to the lesbian bars that were subject to raids and harassment by the police and the public. It ultimately grew to have chapters nationwide, the last of which dissolved in the late 1990s. “Coming Out, Becoming Ourselves” includes 21 interviews with members of the Boston-Cambridge chapter, chronicling their struggles and the way they joined together to overcome the prejudices of the time.

When someone does not show up for a program they are registered for, they are taking away an opportunity for another member of the community. Patrons who are registered for an event they cannot attend are asked to cancel their registration at least 24 hours in advance. Failure to show up for programs two (2) times without notice will be grounds for being waitlisted for 90 days. Patrons who arrive 10 minutes or more after the program start time will be considered no-shows. They may be denied access after that time, and their spot may be given away to people on the waiting list.
