Describe Your Perfect Day in San Francisco
My perfect day would start with the (rare) opportunity to grab a delicious breakfast or Vietnamese sandwich at Castro Tarts with my partner, transwoman singer-songwriter Shawna Virago. Then I would bring a picnic out to Fort Funston and watch for whales and dolphins (we’ve seen both there)! Dinner would have to be at our favorite friendly French restaurant Café Bastille (in magical little restaurant back street Belden Place). Finally, we would drive up to Twin Peaks and enjoy the nighttime lights from Twin Peaks.
What should every visitor to San Francisco do at least once?
Walk to the top of Bernal Hill and enjoy the views; take in some LGBT arts and culture (like the San Francisco Transgender Film Festival, the Queer Cultural Center, Peacock Rebellion, StormMiguel Florez, SF’s Trans March, and Star Amerasu).
