The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center invites the community to participate in the June discussion of the center's Queer Memoir Reading Group, featuring Rainbow Warrior: My Life in Color by Gilbert Baker, creator of the rainbow flag.
Rainbow Warrior is Baker's passionate personal chronicle, from a repressive childhood in 1950s Kansas to a harrowing stint in the US Army, and finally his arrival in San Francisco, where he bloomed as both a visual artist and social justice activist.
Kirkus Reviews writes, "A moving, educative memoir from one of the innovators of the gay liberation movement."
