San Francisco Pride Celebration in 2021

In a typical year, the culmination of San Francisco Pride is the Celebration: a two-day festival in and around Civic Center that includes more than 20 community-programmed stages and venues. The Don Julio Latin Stage, Soul of Pride, Homo Hip-Hop, and the Women’s Stage all produce hours of entertainment that showcase the full diversity of the Bay Area’s LGBTQ+ communities.

The Main Stage is, of course, the centerpiece. Notable headliners through the years have include Sylvester, Lady Gaga, Margaret Cho, Amara La Negra, The B-52s, and Big Freedia. Historically, the Celebration is where everyone — from younger people questioning their sexuality to veteran activists who worked alongside Harvey Milk, from families to allies — can feel welcome and seen.

Due to ongoing public-health guidelines and social-distancing protocols, we cannot be sure when such large-scale gatherings will once again be safe. The theme for 2021 is "All in This Together,” and our Board and Staff are working on exciting alternatives that honor the history and the spirit of San Francisco Pride. We are excited to share the details with you in the weeks to come.

June 2021 is Pride Month!

More information will be available as details are solidified.
