UPDATE June 30, 2015

Galería de la Raza strongly condemns last night’s act of terrorism to try to yet again silence Chican@/Latin@ LGBTQ visibility.

On Monday, June 29 at about 11pm, the Por Vida digital mural by Manuel Paul was set on fire. Thankfully no one was physically hurt; however, the emotional trauma our neighbors and local communities have suffered is unacceptable and we must find ways to heal. The level of anger and hate expressed by the perpetrator(s) has moved beyond the dislike of a piece of art and into endangering the lives of families who live in the building and could have displaced families that have lived in the building for more than 20 years.

We have the perpetrator(s) for the last two incidents on video and this is an active investigation with SFPD and we will be cooperating with SFPD in their investigation.

In midst of all the hatred and violence we have experienced, we maintain a strong dedication to Galería de la Raza’s mission to help give voice to all relevant issues within the larger Chican@/Latin@ communities including LGBTQ Latin@’s. 


We will be hosting a community conversation on Saturday, July 18th, details to come.

Digital Mural

Galería de la Raza is pleased to announce its newest digital mural installation, Por Vida, a work by Manuel Paul of the Los Angeles-based Maricón Collective. Timed in honor of San Francsico Pride Month and inspired by the dedicated work of Queer People of Color, Paul’s art celebrates achievement and strength in the LBGT community.
