Day Around the Bay: SF Sports Activist Pushes Bay to Breakers to Honor Non-Binary Winners


  • You can currently register as “non-binary” for Sunday’s big race in SF, which will now give out prizes and awards to non-binary winners. Calamia, a 25-year-old teacher in San Francisco who consider themselves transmasculine, said that competing as a non-binary runner allows them to participate as their authentic self, even though winning prizes for most of the country’s races — which just recently didn’t include Bay to Breakers until public outcry changed that on Thursday — don’t acknowledge non-binary contestants; Calamia and others are trying to change that.

  • Someone riding an electric scooter in Lower Nob Hill on Thursday night was robbed at knifepoint after riding too close to a stranger. The 37-year-old male victim was reportedly uninjured and identified the perpetrator as being another man near his age; it’s unclear if the victim was riding on the sidewalk — which is not permitted in San Francisco — or not.  [Chronicle]

  • Here’s your reminder to not check your stock portfolio and crypto investments for a good while… and just set up a certain auto-deposit amount of your monthly income to go toward your Roth IRAs and 401ks. [New York Times]
