SOMA Poles Wrapped with Leather Pride

The LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District contracted installation of 107 Leather Pride Flag images on light poles in the District as part of our placemaking efforts to reinforce the aesthetic and the identity of our unique neighborhood.

Look for them on Folsom, Harrison, Howard, Ringold, the Eagle Plaza and numbered cross streets!

The Leather Pride Flag design reflects the crosswalks at Eagle Plaza, and the world’s largest, flying Leather Pride flag on the Tony DeBlase Flagpole.

The 25″ tall flags include the Cultural District logo, and are positioned high enough on the poles to allow for both good visibility and space below for temporary event posters.  They have an anti-graffiti coating and have been heat sealed to the light poles.

Zack Richter, of A3 Visual, installs one of the 100+ Leather Pride Flags on Harrison Street.

It was a long road to get them approved, manufactured and installed.  The District would like to thank Supervisor Matt Dorsey, aide Bryan Dahl, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, Bear Pad and A3 Visual for all their help in making this happen!

Go take a look!
