" . . . Fnnch did not help matters when, confronted by one of these critics while he installed a mural on the side of the SF LGBT Center in April, he claimed to be an 'immigrant' to San Francisco himself, because he came from Missouri.

By way of taking credit, the group Gay Shame made a new acronym of their own name to stand for 'Guillotine All YIMBYs Since Honeybears Always Mean Eviction.' . ."
