Table of contents What's This?
First founded in 1981, the Gay Men’s Spiritual Retreat’s (GMSR) mission is, in the words of its 2023 web page, “to foster spiritual growth by sponsoring spiritual retreats and activities that are non-religious non-sectarian and non-judgemental.” This collection includes membership and attendee lists, planning meeting minutes, newsletters, and scrapbooks documenting GMSR’s retreats. Each of the collection’s scrapbooks contain dozens of photographs, sometimes interfiled with songs and ritual chants, spiritual literature, activity schedules, and artworks by retreat attendees, that documenting individual retreats in the North Bay Area.
