Description

"Black Trans Lives Matter" is painted on the pavement in the middle of an intersection in San Francisco's Tenderloin Neighborhood. This is the first officially recognized transgender cultural district in the world. The letters are painted in blue, pink, and white. Next to the words are three hearts.

The mural commemorates the 54th anniversary of Compton's Cafeteria Riot, which is viewed as one of the first LGBTQ+ uprisings — three years before Stonewall.
