Fighting for Queer Liberation since 1970

Our Membership

San Francisco Pride is 501(c)3 nonprofit. In a typical year, we welcome nearly one million attendees to our in-person Pride Celebration and Pride Parade, the heart of Pride month festivities in San Francisco.

San Francisco Pride is a world leader in the global Pride movement and a part of the fabric of Pride events around the globe. We use our Celebration, Parade, and other events to educate, commemorate, and continue our struggle for true liberation — as well as to raise much-needed money for fellow non-profits across the Bay Area. At our core, we believe the festival and parade should be affordable and accessible to everyone in our diverse communities. Your membership helps us to attain all of these goals.

The Mission of the San Francisco Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Pride Celebration Committee is to educate the world, commemorate our heritage, celebrate our culture, and liberate our people.
San Francisco Pride is one of the largest LGBTQ+ celebrations in the world, with over 200 parade contingents and exhibitors, and many community-run stages and venues.

We are a non-profit organization that is dedicated to supporting the LGBTQ+ community through a variety of programs, events, and advocacy work. Our annual parade and festival bring together over a million people from around the world to celebrate the beauty and resilience of our community.

At San Francisco Pride, we believe that everyone deserves to be seen, heard, and valued for who they are. We are committed to creating a world where LGBTQ+ people can live, work, and thrive without fear of discrimination or violence.

We are proud of our history and excited about the work we are doing to create a brighter future for all members of the LGBTQ+ community.

Acknowledgement of Unceded Land

The San Francisco Pride Celebration and Parade will take place on the unceded ancestral homeland of the Ramaytush Ohlone peoples, the original inhabitants of the San Francisco Peninsula.

We recognize that Indigenous peoples are the traditional stewards of this land and that their continued presence, resilience, and resistance are critical to the health of our community and the planet. We honor the Indigenous peoples who have lived on this land for thousands of years, and we pay our respects to their elders past, present, and emerging.

As an organization committed to creating a more just and equitable world, we believe it is important to recognize the historical and ongoing injustices committed against Indigenous peoples and to work towards repairing the harm that has been done. We encourage our community to learn about and support the work of Indigenous-led organizations that are working towards justice and decolonization.

We also recognize that the struggles of the LGBTQ+ community are deeply interconnected with those of Indigenous peoples, as both have faced and continue to face systemic oppression and violence. We stand in solidarity with Indigenous peoples in their struggles for sovereignty, self-determination, and the protection of their lands, waters, and cultures.
