Manuel Paul’s Por Vida continues to be attacked by people who don’t believe in the right to love whoever you want. A San Francisco mural, which depicts two same sex couples and one transgender person front and center, was set on fire on Monday at 11:12 p.m. after having already been vandalized three times.
The Galeria de la Raza’s mural cost $3,000 to produce, and was replaced each of the three times it was vandalized. Unfortunately, the mural may not be replaced this time. “We have to consider a lot of things, including the safety of our neighbors upstairs,” said Ani Rivera, director of the Galeria.
