This month marks the anniversary of Empress José Sarria passing, August 19, 2013. José is our revered champion of LGBTQ political activism and civil rights. On May 27, 2006, in The Castro, on 16th Street & Pond in front of the Eureka Valley/Harvey Milk Memorial Branch Library was dedicated as José Sarria Court. I had the pleasure of attending that ceremony and wanted to share some of my photos of that historic event.
