The San Francisco Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Pride Celebration Committee is an ever-evolving member- and community-based organization. Pride's membership assists the Board of Directors in setting the vision for the organization and the annual Celebration and Parade in addition to raising funds and conducting outreach for the organization.
Pride's membership is a voting body that meets monthly - usually on the second Tuesday of each month - with the Board of Directors to make decisions to further the mission of the organization.

These are just some of the ways in which you can be fully engaged with Pride and the greater LGBT community.
