The Castro District is located in Eureka Valley, San Francisco. Commonly referred to as “The Castro” by locals the neighborhood has the privilege of being one of the first gay neighborhoods in America. In the 1960s the area was a working-class neighborhood, and later into the decade and into the 1970s, the Castro became the home of prominent LGBT symbols, peoples and movements. These days, the neighborhood still maintains its LGBT identity and it is an important part of the city as it brings in a lot of tourists both queer and not.
