Celebrating Pride in San Francisco

Posted by Andrea Moran on Jun 27, 2019 10:52:20 AM

San Francisco Pride weekend is here!

The Pride Parade and events this weekend symbolize and celebrate various things: the enduring history of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer dignity and the freedom for all people to live meaningful and proud lives as their own sexual and gender identities.

Pride weekend has something for everyone, no matter the age. There are many opportunities for students to get involved and celebrate this weekend! Pride is also an amazing free event open to any and all people. There is outdoor music, food, dancing and more, and a grand parade on Sunday on the last weekend in June!

Pride weekend is a time to celebrate, learn, support, and be a part of something bigger than you.

Here are some great ways to get involved:
