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.”

Paseo Artistico is encouraging everyone to use your voice, vote and fight for those who have historically been left out of true democracy. In that same spirit, El Tecolote Founder, Juan Gonzales and editor in chief, Alexis Terrazas will also join us as we continue to celebrate 50 Years of El Tecolote, a people powered bilingual newspaper. We also invited several businesses from 24th Street Latino Cultural District to join us live on Facebook.
