The Rainbow Honor Walk seeks to honor heroines and heroes of the LGBTQ communities through a sidewalk tribute in San Francisco’s historic Castro district to honor their contributions. The Rainbow Honor Walk is an all-volunteer organization.

The criteria for all nominations to be honored with a RHW sidewalk plaque are as follows: Self-expressed LGBTQ individuals, now deceased, who made significant contributions in their fields. Criteria for additional names to be added to the Walk over the years may change, subject to the wishes of the community working in concert with the Rainbow Honor Walk Board of Directors.
