Make a SF Tenderloin Trans Flag Crosswalk!

San Francisco's Tenderloin is often seen as high poverty and crime, and only seen for the negatives, instead of for the beauty.
The Tenderloin was recently declared San Francisco's first Historical Transgender District. The TL was a safe haven for trans women, when nowhere else in the city was safe. The TL was also where Compton's Cafeteria Riots occurred, a culture-shifting event that greatly impacted the queer community. It occurred in 1966, three years before Stonewall, but many do not know about it as media barely covered it (due to the neighbourhood's reputation and the marginalised communities that lead it).
Let's band together by signing this petition to honour the unheard voices of the drag queens, gay men, and trans women involved in Compton's Cafeteria Riots. This would involve trans flags painted on the crosswalk of Taylor & Turk (also called Gene Compton's Cafeteria Way and Vicky Mar Lane).

Pictured above is a photo that I made as what I imagine it to look like. There would be 60 lines in total, similar to the rainbow crosswalk in the Castro. In order, it would have: 15 blue lines, 10 pink, 10 white, 10 pink, 15 blue; 60 overall.

In just 8 days, we’ve just surpassed 28 signatures. Thank you to everyone who’s signed and shared!

Upon reaching 3,000 signatures, I plan to contact and share it with Matt Haney, the representative of the Tenderloin District and a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. I believe that he’d be completely on board with my idea. He’s very pro-LGBT and even fought with Tom Ammiano to bring the first LGBT Studies class to SF’s public schools.
