Photo Essay: San Francisco’s Castro District

Welcome to The Castro District of San Francisco, better known to many as the gay capital of the world. Homosexualized during the gay liberation movement of the 1960’s and 70’s, The Castro is home to LGBT history, rainbow flags, the famous Castro Theatre and plenty of color!

We spent our week in San Francisco living in the neighborhood and saw many interesting sights during our time there. These sights ranged from public displays of affection to drag queens just strolling around and more than a few creative signs. Here are the best of our photos from The Castro.
