Featuring cameo appearances by luminaries Mayor Willie Brown and "Tales of the City" author Armistead Maupin, ONLY IN THE CASTRO is both a tribute to its star Trevor Hailey and an intimate look into a neighborhood famous globally as home to San Francisco's gay community.

On every corner Trevor runs into colorful friends. "The Castro is just my little Gay America USA!" she beams. Throughout the stroll Trevor confronts stereotypes and clarifies misconceptions held by the straights and gays alike that take her tour. When she announces her retirement, the community throws her a send-off bash.


Trevor's life work was to promote tolerance and understanding, and the movie stays true to her mission. "What I want people to walk away with," says Hailey at the close of the film, "is the fact that Gay is good; Gay is love."
