There's lots to celebrate these days in The Castro , San Francisco's historically gay neighborhood. California's Prop 8, which banned same-sex marriage, has essentially been overturned. And the Castro has been ground zero for what many have called this generation's biggest civil rights battle: the recognition of the right of marriage for all. Although The Castro has a long and proud history of battling for gay rights and may be best-known for electing this country's first openly gay supervisor, Harvey Milk , this neighborhood does not let politics get in the way of having a good time. No matter your political or sexual persuasion, this neighborhood is all about putting differences aside to make way for joy and fun. And definitely don't be the stick-in-the-mud who wants to debate policy when the bass line is thumping, the Happy Hour is in full swing, and there's an endless dance floor just waiting for your best disco moves.

The city had already banned bathhouses — gay sex clubs with private rooms and locked doors — eight years prior, in an effort to curb the spread of HIV.
