CAUGHT ON VIDEO=> Arsonist Torches LGBT Latino Mural in San Francisco
In June the San Francisco art gallery’s mural that mixes Lowrider or “cholo” culture with LGBTQ themes was vandalized three times.
Last week the building with the mural was set ablaze.
The arson was caught on camera.
CBS Local reported:
Police released a surveillance video Saturday of a man suspected of vandalizing a mural in the Mission District.
Around 11:10 p.m. on June 29, police responded to the corner of 24th Street and Bryant Street regarding a building fire, police said.
Upon arrival, police discovered the mural had been burned.
The mural belongs to the Galeria De La Raza and is titled “Por Vida” or “For Life.”
The mural was unveiled by San Francisco’s Galeria de la Raza on June 13th and is located close to the gallery. The mural depicts three scenes mixing queer and low-rider culture.
One scene shows two men together, another shows a transgender person and the third shows two women together.
Before the most recent incident, the mural had been vandalized with graffiti on June 16 and again on June 21, police said.
