San Francisco is renaming a street in the Mission to honor a longtime LGBTQ activist.
Alert Alley, which is off Dolores Street, between 15th and 16th streets, will be known as Sister Vish-Knew Way.
Vish-Knew is a co-founder of the The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.
The street is significant because Vish-Knew, and two friends, put on nuns’ habits, a block away from Alert Alley on Easter weekend in 1979.
It was the beginning of what became a global organization designed to advocate for the LGBTQ+ community.
