A celebration of life for former state legislative aide Anna Damiani will be held Saturday, March 12, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the San Francisco LGBT Community Center, 1800 Market Street. All are welcome in-person, stated Alice B. Toklas LGBTQ Democratic Club co-chair Gary McCoy, and the program will be livestreamed on the club's Facebook page.

Ms. Damiani, 65, died February 25. As the Bay Area Reporter noted in its obituary, she worked for 14 years as a district staffer for gay former state lawmaker Mark Leno (D-San Francisco), first in the Assembly then the Senate.

She also served as board president for the Golden Gate Business Association, an LGBTQ chamber of commerce. Ms. Damiani was known for her trademark purple and lavender attire.
