Vicki Mar Lane

The 100 Block of Turk Street is set to be renamed Vicki Mar Lane after transgender performer and activist Vicki Marlane. The renaming is in honor of Marlane's history as a pioneer for transgender inclusion at a time when drag queens were not even allowed into San Francisco gay bars. Marlane died in 2011 at the age of 76. [SF BOS/photo via GLBT Historical Society]
