Program Description

Event Details

Join us on Zoom as Magi Fedorka, an LGBTQI+ activist in Sonoma County, shares a video and talks about queer community building to support activism and changing Sonoma County to be more inclusive.

The Coming Out theme for October 10, 1988 was Historical roots of the LGBTQI+ community of Sonoma County. People participated by sharing their memorabilia. They brought VHS video players, T-shirts, banners, flags, music, flyers, brochures, bumpers stickers and much more! A slide show and overhead projector presentation was recorded via VHS video that evening!

Magi Fedorka is known for drafting the first Pride Resolution for Sonoma County in 1987. She also spearheaded the 5-year LGBTQI+Allies community campaign to get the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors to pass a Pride Resolution which succeeded in 1992. Members of Forward Together, a community building Lesbian and Gay group organized Pride events from June 1987 through 1993. Magi coordinated the June Pride Picnic/Celebrations during those years.

Magi Fedorka collaborates with Adam Richmond and Tina Dungan on LGBTQI+ LEGACY SONOMA COUNTY.
