Iconic transgender pioneer Vicki Marlane gets multi-media exhibit at SF museum

vickimarlaneTHE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Vicki Marlane, a pioneering trans woman, performer and female impersonator from the San Francisco area who passed away two years ago, gets her due in the form of a multimedia exhibit celebrating her iconic life.

Felicia Elizondo, Marlane’s friend and curator of the exhibit says Marlane opened doors for transgender people in the ’60s and it was her involvement in the community that eventually united the transgender and LGBT communities after a period of mutual dislike.

Elizondo approached the GLBT History Museum making a case Marlane’s life for exhibition. Although the museum initially hesitated, they were ultimately convinced of the importance of recognition after viewing the depth of materials and artifacts collected by Elizondo and input from other performers and venues associated with Marlane.

The exhibit runs from now through Feb. 28th, 2014 at the GLBT History Museum in San Francisco.

  1. It was a great Exhibit Opening!! Felicia was tired, but proud of her efforts to get Trans recognition at the GLBT Museum. I have personally been in the Museum several times and inquired as to when they were going to feature Trans folk who made Historical contributions. Luckily, Felicia was executor of Vicki’s estate and had these treasures to Share with the Museum. A representative of Sen. Mark Leno’s Office read a proclamation and the Transwomen who were in attendance made a procession and a Red Carpet entrance. Doors are definitely opening to our Community!!

  2. Congratulations to all involved in this exhibit. It is so very important to preserve our history so that future generations will be able to see it.

  3. Thanks for the comments Liz and Laura!
