The Castro is a neighborhood in Eureka Valley well known as being one of the first gay neighborhoods in the United States and one of the most lively for several decades. Having transformed from a working-class neighborhood through the 1960s and 1970s the Castro remains one of the most prominent symbols of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) activism and events in the world. San Francisco's gay village is mostly concentrated in the business district that is located on Castro Street from Market Street to 19th Street.
Although the greater gay community is concentrated in the Castro, many gay people live in the surrounding residential areas including Corona Heights, the Mission District, Noe Valley, Twin Peaks, Dolores Heights, the Duboce Triangle, and Haight-Ashbury neighborhoods.
Castro Street, which originates a few blocks north at the intersection of Divisadero and Waller Streets, runs south through Noe Valley crossing the 24th Street business district and ending as a continuous street a few blocks farther south as it moves toward the Glen Park neighborhood. It reappears in several discontinuous sections before ultimately terminating at Chenery Street in the heart of Glen Park.
