San Francisco, Castro Parade '91

Rob Lee’s Castro ’91 Limited Edition Series of Prints and Canvases are inspired by the infamous Halloween celebrations that took place annually in San Francisco’s Castro District.

The event, which started in 1948 as a Children's costume contest and parade gradually transformed into a LGBT celebration and then a huge street party along Castro and Market streets with tens of thousands attending.

At its peak, half a million or more revellers took over the streets and turned the Castro into the wildest open air party in America.
