Castro LGBTQ Cultural District Hires District Manager
Castro LGBTQ Cultural District has selected Tina Valentin Aguirre, board chair of the GLBT Historical Society, as its new District Manager.
“The Castro LGBTQ Cultural District will play a critical role not only in preserving the queer history and culture of the neighborhood, but in planning with intentionality for a kinder, more diverse neighborhood for the folks who live, work and play there,” said GLBT Historical Society executive director Terry Beswick, who facilitated the community organizing meetings for the Castro LGBTQ Cultural District from February 2018 until the passage of the enacting legislation in July 2019.
“I can’t think of a better person for this role than Tina Valentin Aguirre, who as chair of the GLBT Historical Society has led the organization during a period of phenomenal growth. They have been a great friend and mentor to me personally, and the district could not have made a stronger choice.”

The San Francisco African American Arts & Cultural District has been working in collaboration with the San Francisco Department of Emergency to create cultural competent messaging in the black community around COVID-19. Co- Directors Ebon Glenn and Ericka Scott participated in an interview with KBLX host Sterling James to talk messaging and the mission of our Cultural District in general.
