37 years since the assassination of Harvey Milk

Today marks 37 years since the assignation of Supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone at City Hall in San Francisco.
These photos are from the annual Harvey Milk Annual Candlelight March from Castro Street to City Hall, around 1990, not positive of the year.

Looking Back 2004 & 2005 images from The Castro

Reflecting back 10 years I found an assortment of photos that really depict The Castro. The photos speak for themselves: some from Folsom St, Dore Alley, Pink Saturday, The Twin Peaks and various street shots.

Twin Peaks Bar, we were so disappointed at the election results that year.



 

1998 – Matthew Shepard – Memorial and Protest

Matthew Shepard was brutally attacked on Oct 6, 1998 and he died on Oct 12, 1998 from the deadly injuries inflicted upon him.  The Castro was in a state of shock, there was a street protest, a candlelight vigil and community expressions of sympathy and outrage on the corner of 18th and Castro.  These photos reflect the hurt everyone felt by this hateful act.
