San Francisco City Hall During Pride
Cleve Jones has seen and done it all. Having hitchhiked from Phoenix to the gay promised land of San Francisco in 1972, he witnessed the rise of the Castro as a worldwide destination, the life and death of his great friend, Harvey Milk, the decimation of HIV/AIDS, and the birth of marriage equality on the steps of city hall. Despite the accolades, Cleve can be seen hanging out at various spots in the Castro and around the city just like a regular gay guy. GayCities talked to San Francisco's patron saint of the movement about his love for his hometown and where he plans to hang out this Pride season.

In the less than three years since drag legend Heklina opened Oasis in San Francisco, the nightclub has become a mainstay of the city’s thriving and eccentric party scene. It’s easy to see why. Located in the heart of the booming SoMa neighborhood, the charming and intimate space has a lineup of exclusive rotating events, from original drag shows to male reviews to concerts. The venue’s two bars and lounge area make it easy to hang out with friends and take in the show on the dance floor. The rooftop bar has become a hot spot as well. Our friends at Queerty caught up with Heklina, covering everything from how Grindr is changing nightlife to old-school San Francisco steakhouses.
