On Tuesday May 23, 2023 we honor the icon Heklina with a community celebration in The Castro. Since the indoor capacity of the Castro Theater was not enough, we have expanded to the street!
Castro Street will be closed between Market and 18th and the indoor memorial will be live-streamed for the public on screens in front of the theater. In lieu of charging any admission and to cover the expenses of producing an event of this magnitude, we are humbly asking for donations. Miss the chance to donate and risk being haunted by Heklina forever.
