More on former mayor Christopher

Evelyn Rose, in her opinion piece in the August 3 edition of the Bay Area Reporter ["Mayor George Christopher: A man misunderstood," Guest Opinion], tells one story about former mayor Christopher. Randy Shaw, in his 2015 book "The Tenderloin," tells a very different story about Christopher and his attempts to destroy and gentrify that San Francisco neighborhood. The way Shaw tells the story, attacks on gays, lesbians, and trans folk were part and parcel of that campaign. Shaw's book is worth checking out.
