Family Day at the CJM

Do children like going to museums? Yes, some do. But all will get on board July 22 at the Contemporary Jewish Museum’s second annual LGBTQ Family Day. The event promises to be a good time for the whole mishpocha, with peformances by the pop group Critical Bliss, the Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco and the S.F. Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band (pictured above); an outdoor picnic area that will double as a sculpture-making workshop; and a family gallery tour of “Do Not Destroy.”
