San Francisco's Castro District -San Francisco's famous Castro District offers a distinctive community of shops, restaurants, bars and clubs catering to the LGBT community and its friends in the shadow of a giant rainbow flag. Home to well-known landmarks like the Castro Theatre, the new GLBT History Museum and Harvey Milk Plaza, the Castro is also the home base for a full calendar of events throughout the year, including the Castro Street Fair, the Dyke March, Pink Saturday, SF Pride related events, and Frameline, the San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival.
San Francisco's SoMa District -San Francisco's SoMa District refers to the city blocks "South of Market Street" where gays and other "alternative" populations began to thrive since the mid-1960s, and in particular the gay leather community around Folsom Street.
Shops specializing in leather and fetish gear, colorful restaurants and popular nightclubs welcome patrons year-round from all walks of life, whether gay or straight. But once a year, in late September, the five Folsom Street blocks between 7th and 12th Street turn into a gigantic fundraising event and welcome Folsom Street Fair, the world's largest leather event showcasing the leather community's culture. A smaller leather and fetish event called Up Your Alley Fair (aka "Dore Alley Fair" since 1985) is held on the last Sunday of July on Folsom Street between 9th and 10th Streets and on Dore Street ("Dore Alley") from Howard Street to half a block southeast of Folsom Street.
