Leather-themed ‘Eagle Plaza’ has been approved by San Francisco Mayor


The Mayor of San Francisco has given official approval to plans for creating a new plaza in the city’s South Market, which is known as the center of the LGBT culture in the city and the Board of Supervisors has backed the decision as well. According to the mayor’s office, the space “will be designed to recognize the strong cultural influence of the local LGBTQ and leather communities”, with a leather pride flag as the plaza is to be located near the Eagle Bar (and to be named after it), which has been traditionally associated with a leather gay subculture. The Mayor promised that the plaza is going to be a “safe space for people of all ages to gather, relax, play, and celebrate,” with open areas to host “neighborhood gatherings, events, and performances.” San Francisco Supervisor Rafael Mandelman, in turn, noted: “The plaza will be an important public meeting place for the leather community during events like Folsom Street Fair and Up Your Alley and will also provide much-needed year-round public park space in SoMa.”
