The Castro + Mission Districts
Explore the social movements that shaped San Francisco into the revolutionary city it is today. Understand how artists and activists are organizing to fight gentrification and preserve local culture.
In the Castro, visit the rainbow-flag filled mecca that’s ground zero for Harvey Milk’s gay rights movement, and stomping ground for the conversation of LGBT+ civil rights.
In the Mission District, see stunning political street art, and understand how feminists, Latinos, shop owners and community members have fought, and continue to fight, to keep the soul of SF alive. This tour is for those seeking an off-the-beaten-path experience.
