Inscribe is a yearly World AIDS Day event held in The Castro, ground zero of the AIDS epidemic. It is a colorful remembrance to honor the men and women who died of AIDS.
Their names are “Inscribed” by students of Harvey Milk Civil Rights Academy and by those who wish to honor a loved one lost to the epidemic
Inscribe honors the men and women who lived in the Castro and around the world that died of AIDS. Participants can Inscribe in chalk on the sidewalk of Castro Street the name of someone lost to AIDS, or allow a student from Harvey Milk Civil Rights Academy, a neighborhood elementary school in the heart of the Castro, to inscribe the name(s) for them.
Names will be inscribed on the sidewalks of Castro Street in brightly colored sidewalk chalk alongside the bronze plaques of the Rainbow Honor Walk, a tribute to gay and civil rights heroes.
Many of the men and women honored at Inscribe lived in the Castro. They worked in the local bars and restaurants. They shopped at and worked in the local businesses. They walked these sidewalks.
