Yesterday afternoon, HRC joined the San Francisco LGBT community at the unveiling of the Rainbow Honor Walk.
The Rainbow Honor Walk is comprised of 20 three-by-three foot bronze plaques of LGBT heroes. The plaques have been installed on the sidewalks throughout the Castro neighborhood in San Francisco. Honorees include Oscar Wilde, George Choy and Tom Waddell.
In a statement, officials said that they were already fundraising and planning for another 20 plaques.
HRC is a proud partner in the Rainbow Honor Walk through the efforts of HRC’s San Francisco Store and Action Center, which sold special Rainbow Honor Walk pins and coffee mugs whose proceeds were donated to support the Walk. The San Francisco HRC Action Center and Store in the historic Castro District is located in the former camera shop owned by civil rights legend Harvey Milk and hosted a reception after the unveiling. In addition to keeping LGBT individuals and allies informed on national issues, the action center engages advocates to push leaders at all levels in support of equality.
