It is with great excitement that we are able to announce the upcoming exhibit at Cup of Joe's Coffee Shop.
The Fellow Travelers Exhibit is a collection of 14 stunning black & white images of Gay liberation pioneers taken by Mark Thompson, one of the foremost chroniclers of the movement. Thompson is best known for his influential trilogy of books dealing with gay spirituality: Gay Spirit (White Crane Books), Gay Body, and Gay Soul.
Fellow Travelers has exhibited at the New York Gay & Lesbian Center, San Francisco Public Library, the LA Gay & Lesbian Center, ONE National Gay Archives, and the Los Angeles Episcopal Cathedral.

See a great YouTube video of the exhibit at the Center in NYC.
You are invited to attend and meet Mark Thompson and Clyde Hall (Featured in the exhibit) at the Gala Reception and Book Signing on Dec. 7, from 7-9 p.m. at Cup of Joe's Coffee Shop. (A limited supply of Mark Thompson's Gay Soul and Gay Spirit: Myth and Meaning will be available for sale as a fundraiser for Queer Spirit Scholarships. Malcolm Boyd's book Take off the Mask will also be available)
All proceeds/donations and sale of books will go towards scholarships for those interested in attending Queer Spirit Retreats. The objective of these appearances will be about self-exploration, understanding our unique history and claiming our essence and gifts within ourselves.
