It’s time to show your PRIDE in San Diego! This year has been a rough year politically for the LGBT community, and I know many San Diegans have taken the time to organize events and peaceful protests, but this is a time to party! I know it’s hard in the shadow of prop 8, but let’s celebrate how far we have come. The theme this year is “Stonewall 2.0- Activism for Equality” and it’s a 3 day event full of music, food, drinks and of course, the parade. The event kicks off tonight with hundreds of parties and drink deals all over Hillcrest. The Parade is on Saturday at 11am and goes down University and then turns on Sixth street. See the map.
The San Diego Pride Celebration is the 5th largest in the United States attracting 160,000 spectators to the Parade and 50,000 to the weekend Festival. The Pride Parade is the best attended and largest single day event in San Diego. The two-day Pride Festival features multiple stages of entertainment, musicians, bands, comedy and dance performers, 300 participating vendor booths, an Art exhibit, a Green With Pride Zone, Farmers Market, cultural presentations, great food and much more!
The event is for EVERYONE gay and straight alike. It’s about peace and love and being yourself. Come out and celebrate. For more info on tickets and event details go to SanDiegoPride.org.
