1800 Market St. San Francisco, CA For this mural we started with the Progressive Pride Flag because to us it represents the amazing diversity within the Queer community. We wanted to showcase “heroes” from the past and present who we feel should be celebrated in the LGBTQ+ community as well as the intersection with our Latino Heritage. We hope that this mural invokes love and curiosity for our past, a connection to our present, and inspire a diverse future for the LGBTQ+ movement. Collaboration with Simon Malvaez

It is also a tribute to the creator of the rainbow flag, Gilbert Baker (R.I.P. 2017), and to all who fought for LGBTQI rights throughout history.
