"I always thought of Castro Street itself and City Hall as being two separate and not connectable places in San Francisco, and here was the connection: the man from Castro Street who glued Castro Street into City Hall, along with the lifestyle of the denizens of Castro Street. And I always thought that was kind of the portrait that I was interested in somehow showing....That was something that Lance's script did really well." -Director Gus Van Sant, from the book
