    New Tom & Jerry Ornament Commemorates Rainbow Flag

    flagTom Taylor and Jerry Goldstein, whose beautifully decorated home in the Castro is a perennial holiday favorite, have a new addition to their seasonal tradition this year. With Gilbert Baker, the creator of the Rainbow Flag, they have made a special tetrahedron ornament. Sales of the ornament benefit Tom and Jerry’s non-profit foundation, which maintains the iconic Rainbow Flag and associated lighting at Castro and Market; provides care, upkeep, cleaning and storage of such flags every day of the year; and supports many LGBT groups.

    The ornaments may be found at Tom and Jerry’s house, located at 3560 21st Street in San Francisco and open outside to visitors in the evenings throughout the holidays. Santa Claus literally pays regular visits to the home, delighting awestruck admirers of the enormous Christmas tree, which towers some 65 feet. It is one of the largest privately displayed holiday trees in the country.

    Tom and Jerry continue to give to our community in so many ways, so please consider supporting their efforts with a purchase of the foldable, colorful new ornament. More information about their non-profit and ways to give can also be found at
