Most people might assume that the Castro has always been San Francisco’s main gayborhood, but that wasn’t always the case. Before the 1970s, San Francisco’s gay community hung out on in the Polk Gulch district, and to this day Polk Street is home to the oldest operating gay bar in the city.
Celebrate the Bay Area's rich LGBTQ culture at the annual Giants LGBT Night at Oracle Park. All members of the LGBTQ community, as well as family, friends and organizations are invited to come out and show their pride with the San Francisco Giants.
San Francisco has changed radically since 1970, going from sleepy, artistic backwater to international powerhouse, but one thing remains the same: each June, we celebrate loud and proud. The City by the Bay will host its 49th Pride celebration on Sat., June 29 and Sun., June 30.
