Groundbreaking at Eagle Plaza in San Francisco

Race Bannon of San Francisco's Bay Area Reporter recorded the Leather Plaza Groundbreaking at Harrison and Bernice Streets in San Francisco on Tuesday, June 18. This is the first plaza or park officially dedicated to the Leather community by any city in the world. San Francisco Mayor London Breed spoke, noting there was an original $200,000 budgeted and that California, through State Senator Scott Wiener, allotted $100,000 toward the project and that San Francisco is funding, the additional $50,0000 needed. There were ceremonial shovels, short speeches, and light refreshments. More info about Eagle Plaza can be found at

Earlier this month, the Board of Supervisors and Mayor London Breed formally approved the new Eagle Plaza. Anticipated to be the cornerstone of the city’s LGBTQ Leather Cultural District, the plaza will be located at 12th and Harrison streets, across from the historic gay bar of the same name. With approvals in place, proponents of the plaza are hoping to have it largely completed before the annual Folsom Street Fair.
