Celeste Newbrough memorial rescheduled

A memorial service and celebration will be held Sunday, December 3 for Celeste Newbrough, a lesbian and early feminist who helped organize against the anti-gay Briggs initiative in 1977, ahead of the election a year later. Ms. Newbrough died August 4. She was 77.

An earlier planned memorial had to be postponed due to the poor air quality during the North Bay fires.

The memorial will be from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley, 1 Lawson Road in Kensington. People are asked to call (510) 506-0291 if they would like to attend. For the Bay Area Reporter's obituary on Ms. Newbrough, see
