I had to look up the meaning of 'Castro'. It's not Fidel, as in my recent post Castro's Favorite Hobby. It's The Castro, San Francisco [Wikipedia].

The Castro District, commonly referenced as The Castro, is a neighborhood in Eureka Valley in San Francisco, California. The Castro is one of the first gay neighborhoods in the United States, and it is currently the largest.

Now you know, too. File under 'chess costumes'.
