Sunday, May 14th – 10am
SF Lives Live Streamed Talk
Malia Spanyol in conversation with
SF Examiner columnist Denise Sullivan
on Bird & Beckett’s YouTube channel
& Facebook page

San Francisco journalist Denise Sullivan conducts a monthly series of conversations (the second Sunday of each month from 10-11 a.m.) with The City’s activists, educators, arts and cultural leaders and lesser-known workers, the everyday people who help make this place we call home, live streamed from Bird & Beckett Books

Today’s guest is Malia Spanyol, who owns four unique small businesses in San Francisco and her most recent brainchild is Mother Bar.

The queer and femme-centered space is located in the Mission, which has historically held space for queer/lesbian communities (despite price-outs and gentrification). Spanyol’s experience as a small business owner in the city – including the Muay Thai gym Woodenman, Thee Parkside, and La Lucha coffee shop – naturally led her to the creation of Mother Bar, dedicated to continuing lesbian culture in the Mission.

Catch the conversation between Malia and Denise on Sunday 5/14 at 10, live streamed on Bird & Beckett’s Youtube channel and Facebook page.
