The public has until the end of January to nominate a local champion of LGBT causes to be a Community Grand Marshal at this year’s San Francisco Pride Celebration & Parade.
San Francisco Pride’s Grand Marshals are the public ambassadors of Pride. Grand Marshals are recognized in all of the following categories:
- Individual Community Grand Marshal:
A Bay-Area based individual or couple who has made a significant contribution to LGBT causes or the community. Nominations open to the public. Voting begins in March.
- Organizational Community Grand Marshal:
A Bay-Area based non-profit organization dedicated to LGBT causes or to supporting the LGBT community. Nominations open to the public. Voting begins in March.
- Lifetime Achievement Grand Marshal:
A Bay-Area based individual who has made substantial contributions to LGBT causes or the community over a lifetime. Public input is sought; nominations are made by the Board of Directors based on community feedback.
With the help of community input, Pride selects these groups and individuals as Grand Marshals to honor their work toward furthering the cause of LGBT people.
Pink Brick nominations are also being accepted until the end of the month. The Pink Brick is a symbol of the first brick hurled at the Stonewall Riots in 1969. This faux award is an opportunity to highlight an individual or organization that has done significant harm to the LGBT community. It is also an opportunity to educate the community and the Pink Brick recipient about relevant issues.
