A proposal is in the works to turn a slice of the Castro into a "gay walk of fame," featuring a collection of plaques honoring LGBT luminaries. The strip would officially be called the "Rainbow Honor Walk."
The Chronicle's City Insider blog reports that project co-chair David Perry says the plaques could be approved by the Civic Arts Commission and installed by the end of the year.
The idea was first proposed by Isak Lindenauer, a Castro resident and merchant, and taken up by former supervisor Bevan Dufty.
Here's a video of the vote on the project last March by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors' Land Use Committee, to which Dufty and Lindenauer explain the origins of the project and the ideas behind it.
