San Francisco revels in its uniqueness. Last month it added another unique aspect: it just might be the only city on earth with officially designated cheerleaders, as voted by the Board of Supervisors.

Cheer San Francisco has been performing gymnastic feats since 1980.  It didn’t begin in San Francisco, but down the Peninsula in Hayward, as an all-male gay organization. After performing just for fun at LGBT sporting events, the group realized its potential as a money generator for worthy groups. Now, 35 years later, they’ve doled out over $300,000, according to the group’s communications director, Nguyen Pham of San Francisco.
