PHOTOS: San Francisco Saw Trans History Month in with a “Riot Party”

This year marks the 55th anniversary of the famous Compton Cafeteria Riots, where queens of the Tenderloin district and throughout the city fought back against police a good three years before Stonewall.

To celebrate, as well as to ring in San Francisco’s first-ever official Transgender History Month, community organizers threw a block-wide riot party to celebrate the first legally recognized transgender city district the world over. 

The outdoor block party featured appearances by the fabulous cast of Diamond Stylz, Personna, Juanita More, Afrika America, and past Director of the Compton Transgender Cultural District, activist and performer Honey Mahogany, who implored everyone to vote a decisive “NO” on the special gubernatorial recall election.
