Seen in an exam room at Magnet, the Castro District health service spot, art gallery and de facto community center. The cartoon syphilis sore was part of an education campaign from about ten years ago called “Healthy Penis.” And spotted dick is something Brits eat. Seriously.

San Francisco Castro District’s New Gay Supe: Scott Wiener sworn in as D8 Supervisor

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In the 30-some years since Harvey Milk held the Castro district seat, it has become almost a tradition for the San Francisco District 8 supervisor to be gay. Scott Wiener, who was sworn in on Saturday, follows Bevan Dufty, who replaced Mark Leno. Both gay. Dufty is now planning a run for mayor, and Leno is a state senator. Before that, lesbians Susan Leal and Roberta Achtenberg held the spot.  Wiener’s opponents were Rafael Mandelman and Rebecca Prozan. Gay and gay. Wiener beat the further-left Mandelman and the fellow moderate Prozan to take the 8th district. Wiener joins District 9 Supervisor David Campos to double the current gay composition of the board. Congratulations, Scott, and Good Luck!
