The Castro LGBTQ Cultural District (CQCD) is committed to preserving, sustaining, and promoting the rich cultural legacy of the Castro and its significance to San Francisco’s LGBTQ+ community and beyond. Our goals are to highlight the structures and sites important to our history; foster racial, ethnic, gender and cultural diversity among residents and businesses; and create a safe, beautiful, and inclusive space for LGBTQ+ and allied communities, to visit from around the world and call the Castro home.
