On March 25, The Academy SF, the members salon and stylish intimate event space, hosted a reception to celebrate Castro Rotary, the first LGBTQ-identified Rotary Club in the world (out of 35,000 existing clubs), which is inclusive and open to all. The club is partnering with LYRIC, OpenHouse SF and Larkin Street Youth Services to continue providing assistance to at-risk LGBTQ youth.

Notable guests included newly crowned Empress Pollo Del Mar and Emperor Leandro Gonzales, mayoral candidate Mark Leno, Honey Mahogany, Sister Roma, and even a few Star Wars stormtroopers. Women and men joined the new Rotary branch, and guests enjoyed drinks and hors d'oeuvres as well as performances by opera singer Breanna Sinclairé and jazz crooner Tom Reardon.
