Event Details

Daniel Curzon, Author; Teacher; Social, Cultural and Political Commentator

Curzon has been on the cutting edge of major social and political issues for years in San Francisco. He is the author of fiction, poems and plays, including the landmark gay protest novel, Something You Do in the Dark, about which Christopher Isherwood wrote, “I greatly admire Daniel Curzon for writing this book,” and Joyce Carol Oates wrote, “Engrossing, powerful and disturbing.”

In 1999 Curzon, an early champion of stopping Internet hate crimes against gays, brought a lawsuit against a website that allowed cyber-bulling of gay teachers. He lost the lawsuit to a rights group that claimed free speech. Curzon appeared on “The Today Show,” “Fox News”, BBC radio, KQED radio and in People Magazine and USA Today

Take Curzon’s tales of Halfway to the Stars: Cable Car Tales of a Grumpy Gripman, in which the gripman says what you secretly agree with but are afraid to say out loud. Add in a mix of hilarious and informative guidelines for “proper gay behavior” in The Big Book of In-Your-Face Gay Etiquette. Bring your ideas and interpretations about what is really happening here and now in San Francisco and the world. Toss in fun, etiquette and cable car secrets you really agree with – all together an evening that you and your friends will not forget.
