Description
Dodi Horvat was a scientist and science fiction writer. This collection consists of Horvat’s creative notes, a small amount of research material, and interviews with transgender men conducted by Thyme Siegel.
Background
Dodi Horvat (1940-1989) was a microbiologist and mycologist who also wrote science fiction. Earlier archivists’ unattributed notes give contradictory accounts of Horvat’s name and identity, listing their formal name as either “Dodi-Dolores” or “Dorothy,” and describing them variously as a lesbian and a transgender man. Horvat lived in San Francisco from 1967 to 1989 and was active in the Gay and Lesbian Sierrans. They played in the Options for Women Over 40 Theatre Group and helped facilitate the Lesbians Over 40 Rap Group of Options.
