You'll hear about Harvey Milk's role as California’s first openly gay elected official, and his legacy that over 500 LGBTQ people now hold public office in America. Whilst in the Castro your guide will tell you how residents have put a stop to demolition halted four-lane freeways and made positive in-roads in feminism and LGBTQ rights. You'll pass by many of the fun LGBTQ bars, pubs and vibrant drag show venues.
The Mission District is an eclectic mix of galleries, basement bars and sizzling street food, which can be enjoyed in the lush greenery of Dolores Park. You'll be taken down Clarion Alley, famous for its vibrant urban street art and political graffiti, and follow in the footsteps of artists, activists and feminists who fight to uphold the soul of San Francisco.
