We all have a perfect version of ourselves in our minds eye, we strive to be that person, some days we succeed other days we fail. San Francisco has been a mecca for queer folk for generations now, for whatever reason this city has called out to its queer children far and wide and beckoned them to come. It is here in this city where so many feel they can become their real selves. This city acts as both a physical and physcological cocoon, it feeds and nourishes us and allows us to blossom into the creatures we have always dreamt of being.
