The ONE Institute and Archives at USC Libraries will host an Ivy Bottini Remembrance event in honor of the former West Hollywood resident and lesbian LGBT activist, who passed away on February 25, 2021 at age 94.

The virtual remembrance programing will take place on Saturday, April 24, 2021, from 10:45 a.m., to 1 p.m.. The 2hr, 15min programing will be streamed live via ZOOM.

“Ivy was many things to so many people. Over the years, Ivy learned that people with whom she shared one aspect of her life, were often unaware of other parts of a life well-lived that made her the icon she was,” reads the Facebook invitation. “Ivy was a multifaceted human being who loved life and was always open to a challenge.”

As part of this virtual tribute, speakers from various aspects of Ivy’s life have been invited to share brief memories of her. Vintage video of the many facets of Ivy’s life and career will capture the essence of “the many faces of Ivy Bottini.”

Beginning at 10:45am PDT, photos from the community will be shared via a slide show. At 11:00am PDT, the live program will begin. At 12:00pm PDT, participants will be encouraged to share their remembrances of Ivy as part of the ZOOM video, or by telephone call-in. There will be a strict two-minute time limit for remarks. Registration is required for this event. A registration confirmation email will include a Zoom link to access the event on April 24, 2021. A reminder email will be sent as well. Questions regarding registration or for a telephone call-in option, contact Jennifer C. Gregg, Executive Director of ONE Archives Foundation, at (323) 419-1681 or jgregg@onearchives.org.

This event is being produced in conjunction with, and hosted by, the ONE Archives Foundation. The final recorded program will become part of the Ivy Bottini Collection at the ONE Archives at the USC Libraries. The video of the remembrance will be available for viewing.
