Trans proud: Liminal Space SF’s founder talks about opening the city’s first trans-centering gallery

Pride is well underway in the Bay Area, as June is a monthlong celebration of LGBTQIA+ culture and history. Local Pride events include park gatherings, film viewings, dance parties, Castro pub crawls and the San Francisco Pride Parade, slated for its in-person return to Market Street on Sunday. And, with anti-LGBTQ legislation recently brought forward in states such as Florida, Alabama and Kentucky, visibility of the queer community — being out and proud — is unquestionably important right now. Visibility is a key component of the art gallery Liminal Space SF, which opened on April 29 in San Francisco’s South of Market District. The gallery — the first of its kind in the city — puts transgender artists and their work front and center.
