Strolling through history on LGBT walk of fame

Oct 1, 2015

As preparations for Sunday's Castro Street Fair wind up, 20 bronze sidewalk plaques are in place to guide pedestrians on a stroll through queer history. The Rainbow Honor Walk is a growing monument along the streets of San Francisco honoring LGBT pioneers. Rainbow Honor Walk co-founder David Perry is Eric Jansen's guest on Out in the Bay, 7pm Thursday. We also hear Steven Short's feature on “The Queer Past Becomes Present,” an ongoing exhibit at the GLBT History Museum on 18th Street, also in the Castro.
