Community Fundraiser

The SF Eagle Bar invites you to a special Saturday beer bust on April 13 from 3-6pm.

One-hundred percent of the proceeds pledged will go to the Cat Club — a fellow business in the LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District of the West SOMA neighborhood that was affected by a recent break-in and robbery that resulted in thousands of dollars worth of damages.

(A San Francisco Chronicle story about the burglary can be found here, and a link to a fundraising campaign is here.)

The Saturday fundraiser, which takes place at 398 12th Street, aims to provide financial assistance to the establishment and workers who were impacted by the crime. The SF Eagle Bar is committed to standing in solidarity with its community during challenging times, exemplifying the spirit of resilience and support that has defined the South of Market neighborhood for decades.

Attendees of the fundraiser can contribute to the cause by purchasing a $20 beer bust cup, which includes a substantial meal. Additionally, guests will be treated to performances by local drag artists, adding an extra layer of entertainment. Cat Club’s Porter Venn will DJ the event.

   “We believe in the strength of our community and the power of coming together in times of need,” Lex Montiel, owner of The SF Eagle Bar said. “This fundraiser is our way of demonstrating our unwavering support for our neighbors and ensuring that those affected have access to the assistance they deserve.”

Park Naming Round 1

Name the New Park After Rachele Sullivan

  • A new park is being built at 11th and Natoma Streets, half a block from the LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District.
  • The Rec and Parks Department is soliciting community input into naming the park.
  • We proposed the park be named after Rachele Sullivan, one of the founders of our Cultural District and a prominent figure in SOMA’s Filipino community.
  • Other LEATHER & LGBTQ-related proposals are naming the park after:
    • Heklina, a founder of Oasis, and
    • Jim Meko, a community activist (nominated by LCD Board Member Emeritus and District Historian Gayle Rubin).
  • A community meeting was held on March 7, and the survey results were reviewed and discussed.  A run-off survey will be conducted soon.
  • Please watch this page for information about that survey.
  • Once the new survey goes live, we encourage you to vote for Rachele Sullivan, a woman who proudly embodied the intersection of the queer, leather, Filipino, Indigenous, and disabled communities.
  • We will need you to take this survey even if you took the earlier one.
  • Thanks!
