San Francisco Creates District for Trans People to Spread Gender-Fluid Culture

A shot of life in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco, Calif.

By Published on December 13, 2018

San Francisco created a special cultural district for transgender persons, marking the first legal transgender district created anywhere in the world.

San Francisco’s Tenderloin district is now home to “Compton’s Transgender Cultural District,” The Daily Beast reported Tuesday.


The Tenderloin is a triangular neighborhood located a few blocks from San Francisco’s City Hall. It is also San Francisco’s most notorious drug district, according to authorities, Vice reported in 2014.

It is one of the most dangerous districts in the city, authorities say.

Hyde Street’s 300 block is regarded as the city’s grossest block. Human waste lying in the streets is a norm, reported The New York Times in October. The block is part of San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood.


The district was created in order to create a “safe space” for transgender persons and to aid those who identify as transgender being pushed out of their own neighborhoods, according to Compton’s district manager, Honey Mahogany, the Beast reported.

The district will also teach San Franciscans about the history of transgender evolution, Mahogany said, according to the Beast.

“The Tenderloin has always held a really special place in my heart as a trans person with the way the community is accepting of gender variant and trans people of color,” Mahogany said, the Beast reported.

The new district was announced in a Tuesday Facebook post.

The district received $215,000 from the city after Proposition E passed in November, allocating 1.5 percent of the city’s base hotel tax to cultural and art purposes, according to Ballotpedia. The legislation was first introduced by district Supervisor Jane Kim in June 2017, according to the Beast.

“The first transgender commemorative neighborhood in the nation’s history is well timed given the president’s attack on transgender people,” Kim said.

Daughter of a Baptist minister in San Jose, California, Donna Personna, also applauded the new district. “It’s an act of resistance and of fighting back,” she said, according to the Beast.

“I’m proud and happy with myself that we did something tangible against the Trump administration,” Personna said.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed, a Democrat, did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller New Foundation’s request for comment.

    What an ironic choice of names exposed with the addition of a hyphen between the 2nd and 3rd syllables and that the area is known more for its decadance than, if any, attributes. Poetic justice?

    Don’t worry folks, there are Brothers and Sisters working the Tenderloin faithfully, and God is and will continue to be glorified by their efforts. Brother Bill Wegmann was one such Brother, although he is with Father in heaven now. The Golden Gate Assembly of God church at 535 Eddy St. where Brother Bill was a pastor has faithful Brothers and Sisters who are right there in the thick of it. Pastor Prosser and crew with the SF Homeless Church are faithful servants spreading the gospel throughout the city, in combined efforts with a lot of other SF churches. The darker the darkness, the brighter any Light shines! Y’Shua Hamasheach will be glorified!

      but yes, the place is filthy, and there is human poop and used syringes EVERYWHERE. But there are lost people who Father in Heaven loves insanely, who just need faithful workers to continue to share the Gospel and love of Jesus with them, praying that Father will grant them repentance, and deliverance from their drugs and booze and perversion and hopelessness and depression and mental problems and…

    How sad, when so many people’s main focus of each day is to “get Trump”.

  • It is strangely fitting that the most messed-up section of the city be chosen to celebrate the dysfunction of gender dysphoria.

    This sounds… germy. Maybe we should fence them in.

    That would be the ENTIRE CITY! It would be easier to tell us where they are NOT spreading their filthy diseases!

    Has America gone too far for too long from our LORD Jesus Christ. Is America doomed to the same fate as Sodom and Rome?
