Castro Photos

Sunday, October 4, was a perfect day for the Castro Street Fair.


Reopening of the Harvey Milk Branch of the Library, October 24 after 18 Months

The elusive Donna Sachet in red thought the ceremony started an hour earlier than it did, so she had to slip away at the beginning.


The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence gave a blessing.


Supervisor Bevan Dufty cut the ribbon. Next to him is State Senator Mark Leno.


A Chinese dragon led the crowd into the renovated library, which has many more computer terminals and lots of other improvements.



Judging by the obscenities shouted by the construction workers, the lovely new rainbow geyser at the corner of Market and Sanchez was unintentional



With Wayland dead, in lieu of Flowers the eternal Madame was in town with her new partner Rick Skye for a weekend appearance at the Rrazz Room. They visited the Castro the day before Halloween, where they were greeted by dapper Mike Brownstone.


Here are Madame and Rick in Harvey's. Madame must have a hollow leg. I've never seen anyone drink so much while remaining a perfect lady — except, of course, Dame Edna and Armistead.


Here's the greeter at the Cafe Flore.


At the Harvey Milk Library branch, patrons were warned that the zombies are looking for brains. "Don't worry, you're safe."


At Given Gifts, on the site of Harvey Milk's old camera store, owner Nick Romero did a Letterman on clerk Patty Cakes.


Cliff's had a spooky window.


Whereas nine people were shot a couple of years ago, the only casualty this Halloween was this woman, who'd had one too many screwdrivers. Luckily she had a real ambulance and EMT to pose with.
