A Place of Our Own

The nation's first gay museum opens today in San Francisco.

Well of course San Francisco. You were expecting Duluth?

The GLBT History Museum is just the second on the planet devoted to gay materials and archives. The other is in Germany.

As a history buff, I can't wait to visit the 1,600-square-foot space in the Castro. I wonder if there's a gift shop? Stocked with Harvey Milk coffee mugs and Stonewall action figures?
