San Francisco Pride invites you to join the Board of Directors in our Resistance Contingent at this year’s parade on June 30th, 2024.
This is an opportunity for trans-led orgs, groups, and organizers to be at the forefront of this year's Parade.
It has been a San Francisco Pride tradition to showcase a facet of the LGBTQI2S community at the front of the parade each year — a unique commitment to maintaining the roots of Pride and honoring our collective history. We have stuck with each other through so many divisive and regressive challenges with dynamic strength and vigorous dialogue. Community will always rise to the top as long as love and respect is present.
We continue to see anti trans bills proposed. Targeting trans and non-binary youth, these bills aim to limit ability to receive gender affirming care, use the bathroom matching their gender identity, and threatens their participation in sports. These laws are an attempt to make it easier to punish trans & non-binary folks for simply existing. We must stand up and fight with every breath that we have.
After careful consideration the board collectively made the decision to lead off the 54th Annual Parade with a protest contingent highlighting the issues faced by our TGNC communities.
Eschewing the usual floats and music, representatives from about 20 diverse organizations will lead the Parade with an all-on-foot March down Market Street. Highlighting concerns ranging from trans rights, BLM, reproductive rights, immigration policies, and the continued profiling and persecution of Black folks. These voices will lead the normally celebratory event with a political statement reminiscent of the very milestone it commemorates — The Stonewall and Compton cafeteria Rebellions.
We invite you to participate in our Resistance Contingent taking place June 30th, 2024.
