Marie Cartier and Carolyn Weathers both presented at the American Academy of Religion Annual Conference this year held in San Antonio, Texas.

Carolyn, whose photo appears on the cover of Marie’s book, Baby, You Are My Religion, will be presenting on and giving a tour of LGBTQI sites in San Antonio from the 1950s and 60s.

Carolyn has an extensive collection of photos she has been taking since the 1950s and includes sites such as the Acme Bar, Top Hat, Fernando’s, and other locations around the city and the surrounding countryside. Here is a short clip of her on The HomoFiles  public access show from 2011.

Marie presented a paper on the Orlando Pulse nightclub tragedy. You can watch an excerpt of her presentation from the WeHo Lesbian Panel Series in September 2016.
