Castro District

738 items

Kirkeberg's Castro collection documents the elements of change in the famously gay neighborhood, particularly its evolution from the "hedonistic" 1970s into the AIDS-dominated 1980s and 1990s, and recently into a "hyper-gay" tourist landscape.  The Castro collection shown here only documents the commercial center of the neighborhood, mainly Market Street, Castro Street, and 18th Street; For views of the residential areas of the Castro District, please see the Eureka Valley Collection.
