In San Francisco, the LGBTQ community isn't specific to one neighborhood. It's everywhere.
It wasn't an accident that San Francisco became the LGBTQ capital of the world. We've always been a city where everyone is welcome, where boldness is rewarded, and where nothing is more valued than the freedom to express yourself.
You can see LGBTQ influence in our history, in trailblazers like Harvey Milk, the fight against AIDS, and the fight for marriage equality. You can see LGBTQ influence in our present, in the creative ways we support and champion each other, in the flags that dot many of our small businesses. And you can experience and celebrate alongside the LGBTQ community at our many local icons, festivals and bars.
