In a nod to Pride Month, Wednesday-morning commuters on the N-Judah were greeted during rush hour with unofficial signs admonishing transphobia.
Printed on the laminated hangtags Muni often uses to distribute shutdown notices, the fake signs were formatted to look like Muni's official signage.
Instead of the usual red color scheme, however, they used the blue, pink and white of the transgender pride flag.
Muni confirmed on Twitter that they weren't responsible for the notices:
No, these are not agency approved.— SFMTA (@sfmta_muni) June 13, 2019
The signs read, in both English and Spanish:
At all stops between Ocean Beach and Caltrain
We’re still f--king here
If you f--k with us, we’ll f--k you up
Be gay, do crime
The bottom right corner of the signs features an “anti-transphobia action” flag insignia, a play on the German anti-fascist symbol.
It's unclear who created the signs. The organization that created them bills itself as "Anti-Transphobia Action," but there appears to be no official group working under that name.
An anonymous Twitter account, @pridetrainsf, appears to have been created by the signs' makers. Images it shared late on Tuesday night suggest that more signs may be forthcoming on other Muni lines.
