Pride events are held throughout June across the city.
According to the SF Pride website, “the San Francisco Pride Celebration and Parade is the largest gathering of the LGBT community and allies in the nation,” which is not an overstatement. Last year, organizers estimated 100,000 people attended the parade alone, with an additional 50,000 participants.
This year's theme is "Generations of Resistance," which is a nod to the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, Compton's Cafeteria riot and the history of the community in San Francisco.
SF Pride weekend itself is comprised of two components: the celebration and the parade.
Where will it be?
The celebration will be at Civic Center Plaza from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. There isn't a fee to enter, but donations of $1 to $5 are requested at the gate. This event features multiples stages, speakers, performers and vendors. This year's guest list includes Kristin Beck, Pabllo Vittar and Amara La Negra. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence will also be celebrating 40 years of community service, ministry and outreach.
