Rick Gerharter’s Work Is At Oakland Ca Museum

Rick Gerharter (left) with yours truly, Jim James (right). Here we are in front of Rick’s photographs at the Oakland Museum’s new show: “Queer California: Untold Stories” from April 13 to August 11, 2019.

Rick has earned his place in history as a photojournalist, documenting decades of struggles and triumphs for the San Francisco Bay Area Reporter, the preeminent gay community news organization.

The museum donor’s preview event Thursday was packed with VIP’s. Afterwards, we escaped to Huangcheng Noodle House on Webster and 8th St. in Chinatown. The Chinese potato salad appetizer was a delightful adventure in newness for us. Shredded, blanched and then cooled potatoes drenched in a sesame oil green onion light curry spiced vinaigrette.

A gigantic, rich, savory bowl of shaken beef noodle soup. It was so good I almost didn’t even notice my pal Rick’s fashion forward camera print shirt. He really is a dedicated Shutterbug!

During those rare moments when either of us Chatty Cathys had nothing to gossip about, there was the ubiquitous gigantic flat screen television off in the corner, featuring the Cat Channel!
