The Rainbow Honor Walk: San Francisco pays homage to the LGBTQ Community
San Francisco's Rainbow Honor Walk serves to acknowledge and memorialize Great men and women of the LGBTQ Community. 44 large bronze plaques have been laid along Castro Street and Market Street sidewalks to memorialize people like James Baldwin, Frida Kahlo, Tennessee Williams, Virginia Woolf to cite but a few. The plan is to eventually place 500 plaques to memorialize luminaries of the LGBTQ community. As the rest of the country witnesses statues being torn down and monuments being defaced, San Francisco's LGBTQ community is quietly acknowledging its' history.
