worried that the castro district is losing its prominence as the city's cultural center for gays and lesbians. ktvu kristen captain tells us about the effort to maintain the castros cultural identity, san francisco's castro district is a thriving neighborhood with clear cultural ties to the lgbtq community. but long time residents say the area is losing some of its lgbtq members. making way for straight families. i like playing with the kids, you know? and darling talk darlings on the sidewalks. it's just but it's just, you know, i'm also looking around and even my own friends and who are also gay, and it's like i'm seeing they they're going to, you know, live in the neighborhood. what do we was castro's roots with the gay rights movement began after world war two when working class families moved out and gay men moved in the lgbtq population continued to grow through the 19 seventies and into the 19 eighties, when the aids crisis hit. historian terry bestwick from the glbt historical society says as gay men died, non gays began moving
in that displacement continued and accelerated over the decades as housing prices in the area increased. we've been seeing gaber hoods, uh, being lost in major cities all across the country for some time, and so. so yes, the castro as a gay identified neighborhood is definitely under threat. best book is worried that the castro could diminish as a destination for lgbtq youth as it was when he came to the city in the early 19 eighties. other young people like me were able to find a cheap place to stay. we were able to go to school become activists all on. salary of bussing tables or what have you, you know, and no it is. you know, that's not really a possibility. lyric is a nonprofit serving nearly 1000 lgbtq youth, and only about 2% come from the castro district. the organization says. that means the castro needs to be preserved as a safe place for lgbtq youth. i think it's
important that young people still come to the castro. and see role models for what they could be as as adults as positive, healthy adults. the castro lgbtq cultural district is dedicated to preserving the cultural identity of the neighborhood. part of that means studying demographic trends, especially now, as the pandemic draws to an end to get an idea of who is moving out, and who's moving in the data. it needs to get updated. um i what i'm aware of is there were many evictions and many vacancies in the castro in terms of businesses and residents, supporters of keeping the castro gay say bringing people together in one area is empowering, economically and politically. supervisor raphael man, delman says it's important to strike a balance between maintaining the castros cultural identity while welcoming non gays and straight families, but i do believe that it is important to remember the
history of the place. um, to be there for people who still need. gaber hood, uh, to meet people to gathered, organized politically nicastro lgbt q cultural district is working on conducting a study trying to assess the neighborhoods needs around everything from arts and culture to land use and housing. that's an important first step, they say in trying to preserve the neighborhoods culture in san francisco christian captain ktvu fox two news, and this is one in a series of reports in conversations will have throughout the month of june celebrating pride. you can see those reports anytime by visiting our website ktvu .com slash pride. julie so many great things to see as we celebrate the lgbtq community, andre, thanks and thanks all of you for joining us tonight. stay tuned because sports wrap with joe fonzi and jason appelbaum is coming up next. have a great night, everybody. good night.
