Ms. Bob Davis – Founder, Director
Ms. Bob Davis served two terms on the GLBT Historical Society board of directors, one as secretary. She will present on two panels at Moving Trans History Forward 2020, University of Victoria, BC, Canada. She presented there in 2014 and 2018 as well. Her talk, “Glamour, Drag and Death: How Two Community Archives Preserve Art from the Era of HIV/AIDS,” was presented at the Archives, Museums and Special Collections Queering Memory 2020 conference in Berlin. After the presentation she was invited to turn the talk into an article for the “Trans and HIV/AIDS” issue of Transgender Studies Quarterly (Duke University Press), due out later this year. Her autobiographical essay, “For As Long As I Can Remember…,” is included in Glimmerings (TransGender Publishing, 2019) an anthology of people relating when they first realized their transgender identity. Currently she is writing a chapter for Life Trips: Navigating Transgender Aging, Illness and End of Life Decisions, edited by Jude Patton and Margo Wilson. Ms. Bob teaches music at Napa Valley College and City College of San Francisco.
