Wikipedia’s description of Duboce Triangle

Located at the western end of Market Street in the middle of the City, is San Francisco’s well-known Castro District. Noted since the 1970’s for its large gay, lesbian and transgender population, this lively neighborhood supports numerous shops, restaurants, bookstores, bars and theaters primarily around the intersection of 18th and Castro Streets and along the western section of Market Street. Traditionally, the Castro has been known as Eureka Valley and is generally considered to include the neighboring Dolores Heights and Duboce Triangle areas. Like nearby Noe Valley, true pride of ownership is synonymous with this somewhat hilly district that counts numerous beautiful Victorian houses and exceptional modern architecture as part of its housing landscape.
