Thanks to everyone who visited our booth at the 2019 Pride Celebration!  Many of you received info cards sending you to this Web site — thanks for following up and visiting!  Feel free to browse the site, and please do consider attending our next Community Meeting (info below.)

Thanks especially to the GLBT Historical Society  who arranged the booth for us and the Castro LGBTQ Cultural District.  It was wonderful to be able to share with so many people (locals and from around the world) just how much our city values its LGBT population and culture.

And of course, maximum thanks to the wonderful volunteers who helped staff the booth over the two days.

As we said so often, to so many people:  “Help keep our city kinky!”
