Mason J

San Francisco Public Library
SF/Oakland
Mason J. Olaya-Smith went from sleeping in the San Francisco Public Library to being the first fellow at the James C. Hormel LGBTQIA Center on the third floor. In the past, Olaya-Smith, who identifies as a trans, intersex, and genderqueer person, struggled to secure employment and housing because of their identity, but now things are stabilizing. For about 12 hours a week, Olaya-Smith comes to the center to do outreach on social media and explore the ins and outs of the material at one of the country's premiere archives for the LGBTQ community.
