Take a Stand for Pride

Equality Is A Year-Round Commitment

The burden of our dreams for equality and justice lies on our collective shoulders. Since 1970, San Francisco Pride has been a witness to monumental changes in society.

In 2015 we witnessed:

Every celebration and parade offers an historic moment in the Pride movement. San Francisco Pride uses these moments as opportunities for education and liberation, bringing together the creativity and wisdom of people at the forefront of these victories and challenges.

    • "But we will not be done - until that transgender, African American, living in a rural area, poor lesbian, living wherever she does, any gay person, any queer person feels the dignity. We are going to be embraced and celebrated no matter who we are, no matter where you live."

    • "I want to share a message today of hope and encouragement for you, for anybody who has Christian parents or family members or friends who don’t support you or who anyone here who may be both LGBTQ and Christian, like me. And that message is this- is that change is coming."

    • "...and don’t forget that when we talk about black lives, we mean all black lives. So let me here you say - Black trans lives matter! Black poor lives matter. Black queer lives matter! Black immigrant lives matter. Black disabled lives matter! All black lives matter!"

The theme of the 2016 LGBT Pride Parade, “For Racial and Economic Justice,” continues this exploration, in recognition that our identities are woven fabrics of orientation and gender, class and culture.

But we need your help.

Production of the annual event is budgeted at $2 million. Contingents are registering, we are fielding queries from around the globe, and the excitement is building toward that final weekend in June.  We are depending on the input and support of the community. Can you make a donation today?

Your tax-deductible donation will help us as we plan our educational programming and production of the annual event. We will stay in touch over the next few months as we reveal details for 2016.

We look forward to seeing you in June!
