Before They Left Us
In Before They Left Us, Rosemary Davis explores all the twists and turns of San Francisco’s streets on a mission to find her identity, both as a woman and as an artist. The Midwesterner finds herself in the warm embrace of a diverse community. She and her cronies experience not only the exhilarating final days of disco and the changing political scene, but also the jolting tremors of earthquakes and assassinations. Her sensuality and political activism blossom within this charged atmosphere.In this firsthand account, Davis captures the people, politics, and history around her. From the news of the International Hotel’s demolition, to the assassinations of her neighborhood’s gay supervisor Harvey Milk and Democratic mayor George Moscone, to the onset of AIDS, Before They Left Us reveals one young woman’s leap from a blue-collar Catholic neighborhood in Milwaukee to California’s gay Main Street—the Castro. Later, she makes a series of trips from the Midwest back to California into those once and still gorgeous Victorians to tend her dying friends with AIDS. She learns that activism and art can help channel grief and that community is essential to surviving trauma.
