San Francisco Board of Supervisors: Add Vicki Marlane's Name to Street Signs on the 100 Block of Turk St.

    1. Petition by

      Harvey Milk Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Democratic Club

February 2014


On February 25, 2014, Supervisor Jane Kim introduced a resolution to add Vicki Mar-Lane to the street signs on the 100 block of Turk St. - thanks to YOU! We so appreciate your help in making this happen!

The Vicki Marlane Memorial Campaign plans to dedicate the new sign on June 25 after this year's Trans March.

Vicki Marlane represented the San Francisco trans community in a vibrant and visible way. That is how we want her to be remembered. We support a visible testament to Vicki Marlane and to the contributions of the trans community to San Francisco.

      so proud of you all for recognizing her this way.

      I was privileged to see Ms Marlane perform on this very block. She was a force of nature, and the kind of icon that we want SF to continue to hold in love and esteem.

      Vicki is such an important figure in the advancement of acceptance for people such as myself. She provided so many people with help, guidance and a place to just be themselves. We come to SF often and Vicki is at the top of our list of people to see, hug, and thank for making our world that much brighter. She deserves this memory.

      It's important for young and older people alike to know work of our pioneers in the LGBT community. Too often we are forced in the closet which makes it harder to achieve equal rights. Vicki Marlane was an out, proud, performer, fundraiser and activist. She was recently honored with an exhibit at the SF LGBT Historical Museum in the Castro district. Transgender people are the most marginalized, discriminated against, and vulnerable group in our LGBT community locally and nationally. I ask that all LGBTs and straight allies support this simple request to honor a legend. By doing so we accurately portray history and provide role models for others. Thank you.

      For a couple of reasons. One I work just down the street from what was the famous "Comptons Cafeteria" and has a plaque embedded in the side walk marking the historical site. It would be fitting then for the purposes of making this location even easier to locate for tourists and history seekers to know that they have reached the right local. This is the practical purpose. The right reason would be to honor a brave and colorful individual who has come to represent a difficult moment in San Francisco history. Please see this through. Sincerely Timothy B Connor
