Thanks to a mix of community advocates, developers, historical buildings, and active city council members, San Francisco may be home to the world’s first transgender cultural district. Cheers from advocates were heard throughout the corridors of San Francisco’s City Hall after Supervisor Jane Kim said that a legislative package was introduced to welcome an appropriated district created to preserve the history of the transgender community, while embracing the city’s current TLGBT residents.
“This is a great thing. Everyone ended up a winner. The SRO [Single Residence Occupancy] housing will be built. It will be a thriving district and not just a plaque on the wall,” Honey Mahogany of the Compton district.
