Regardless of sexual orientation, the Castro is full of wonderful attractions, including the Castro Theatre, one of San Francisco's more popular movie palaces, complete with a world-class interior chandelier, and designed with a colonial Spanish Baroque facade.
Perhaps the area's most culturally significant landmarks, the GLBT Historical Society is a museum and archives, documenting the history of the gay and lesbian communities in the US. Aside from its core purpose, the building also houses other interesting institutions including the Cartoon Art Museum, which features well over 6,000 different cartoons and comics, and the Catharine Clark Gallery, an exhibition applying different forms of media for contemporary, living artists.
Also be sure to check out the Harvey Milk Plaza, named after the famous openly gay politician, commonly labeled the "martyr of gay-rights."
