video : In the Stacks: The Center for Sex and Culture Library and Archives

In the Stacks: The Center for Sex and Culture Library and Archives is a documentary that follows Miss Ian, the Center for Sex and Culture (CSC) Head Librarian, and Poppers the Pony (Dorian Katz), the CSC Curator and Archivist. As artists and CSC volunteers, Miss Ian and Poppers the Pony organize the collecting and cataloging of fringe erotic books, zines, videos and archival material from Bay Area LGBTQ community members and prominent sex educators. Weaving together their own personal work with stories of influential personalities and projects, this short film highlights past and present moments that have shaped San Francisco’s history.
