The Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco is taking very seriously an incident in which a guard tried to get a lesbian couple to stop holding hands while they were viewing — ironically enough — an exhibit on lesbian writer and poet Gertrude Stein.
The SF Chronicle wrote:
Levikow was in the gallery with her partner when she noticed a young lesbian couple in heated conversation with a security guard.
“They were holding hands,” Levikow said, “and he told them they couldn’t hold hands in the museum.”
The couple did not agree. A small crowd began to form and the guard attempted to shoo the couple out the door to quiet things down.
“And they said, ‘No we are not leaving and we want
to talk to somebody in authority right now,’ ” Levikow said. “The idea that in 2011, in San Francisco, at the Jewish Museum, this guard could be that out of touch was shocking.”
I kind of suspect that he had a death wish. Really, would YOU tell two lesbians in San Francisco at a Gertrude Stein exhibit that they couldn’t hold hands?
Oy!!! Duuuuude …
