The 15th annual San Francisco Dyke March was held on Saturday, with a rally and performances on stage starting at 3pm. At 7:00, tens of thousands of women stepped into the street, led by Dykes on Bikes, to demand Health Care for All. imc_photo.gif Photos | imc_audio.gif Audio March organizers wrote, "...and by all, we mean ALL DYKES as well as all people who are shut out, shunted aside, and shit on when they need health care. Except for the very wealthy, everyone in the world needs better health care, and we need it today."

Sunday's Pride parade started at 10:30 a.m., traveling west along Market Street from Davis to Hyde. Celebrity Grand Marshals included "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" critic Eric Alva, who was the first US soldier wounded in the war in Iraq. The annual Pride Celebration continued all afternoon in the Civic Center area. Video: imc_video.gif 1 | 2 | 3
