The city itself has, among its many nicknames, the nicknames "gay capital of the world" and "the gay Mecca", and has been described as "the original 'gay-friendly city'". These transient and diverse populations thrust into a relatively anarchic environment were less likely to conform to social conventions. For example, with an unbalanced gender ratio, men often assumed roles conventionally assigned to women in social and domestic settings.
Last June, a group of protesters lay down in the intersection of Market and Sixth streets. They made a bed of the warm asphalt and streetcar tracks. There were shouts to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement and calls for San Francisco Pride to exclude the police. Eventually, two people were arrested and the parade continued.
