Names were written in chalk onto Castro Street sidewalks as part of Inscribe on World AIDS Day to colorfully remember those lost to the disease, now in its 40th year, and the COVID-19 pandemic that began over a year ago.

Throughout the day December 1, people picked up chalk and were invited to write the names of friends and loved ones or draw images.

This year some people also inscribed the names of people who were lost to the COVID pandemic. In past years Inscribe took place in conjunction with the Harvey Milk Civil Rights Academy, with students from the public school in the Castro named for the slain San Francisco supervisor taken out on a field trip to write names up and down the street.
