Filthiest Rainbow Flags in the Castro: Remove 'em!

Last April and May, I complained to the Department of Public Works about the ratty rainbow flag banners in the Castro district, of all the places - the birthplace of the iconic image.

Part of the responsibility rests with the Castro Merchants group, some with DPW, a bit with state-senator wannabe Scott Wiener and none with ordinary citizens.

In the year-plus since my initial complaint went to DPW boss Mohammed Nuru, and the banner were not removed, the blight worsened.

More filth from exhaust pollution and bird poop, a lotta sunshine and wind, all contributing to make these existing eye-sores even more displeasing to my queer eye.

Check out my video shot this month around the Church Street to Castro Street corridor, documenting yet again the dozen rainbow banners that should have been removed when Bevan Dufty was supervisor of District 8.
