Market Street was graced with a new mural of Robin Williams

Everyone has a soft spot for Robin Williams. Four years after his death, the city he affectionately called home has a new, incredibly detailed mural of the late-Oscar-winner along its main thoroughfare.  Painted by Argentinan muralist Andreas Iglesias, who tags his pieces with the pen name Cobre, the mural is a rendition of a photograph taken by Peter Hapak, the same portrait that appeared in the TIME obituary of the late comedian in 2014. Though, Iglesias chose to give Williams's familiar face a more natural, elderly look.  View this post on Instagram #streetgraffiti #sanfrancisco A post shared by Market Kap (@williamkapke) on Aug 23, 2018 at 5:10pm PDT Williams's white facial hair and kind, deep blue eyes remain intact, but his face is a little more weathered than we remember. Iglesias hasn’t specifically mentioned why he chose to age Williams this way, but we think it looks lovey—and let's face it, we love Williams no matter what.  View this post on Instagram @cobreart was still giving the final touches to this great graffiti mural of Robin Williams A post shared by Hugo Bachega (@hugobachega) on Aug 26, 2018 at 12:45pm PDT Believe it or not, the instantly iconic mural was a spontaneous project. Iglesias was painting with fellow muralist Cameron Moberg in Indiana when Moberg invited him to help paint over one of his San Francisco pieces. Iglesias was given free range to paint whate

San Francisco now has an official LGBTQ Leather District

San Francisco's Leather District, located in SoMa and host to the annual (and infamous) Folsom Street Fair, has finally been given the recognition it deserves: Official status as a cultural district of San Francisco. Last week, The San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to establish an LGBTQ leather cultural district in the neighborhood. And, frankly, it’s a bit overdue. “[This vote] to designate a cultural district has been more than a decade in the making,” said San Francisco Supervisor Jeff Sheehy. "The service of the leather community during the AIDS crisis, the non-profits they founded, the amount of fund raising they did in the fight against AIDS is something that should not be forgotten.” For the nightclubs, bars, shops and other LGBTQ venues that make up the 'hood, the status change is a welcome business boost.  "Just having some recognition that this has history and as people move in to it, to recognize there was something here before them,” said Jonathan Schroder, general manager of Mr. S Leather, a neighborhood shop that has catered to the leather community since 1979, to ABC 7 News. “It helps people understand this existed for a long time as they move heavily into the area and are warm and accepting that these things continue to happen," As a result of being named a cultural district, the new 'hood will receive public money and have negotiating rights in future residential and commercial developments. The city will also consider designating The
