About GLIDE and the GLIDE PRIDE TEAM:
GLIDE has been hailed for its significant contributions to civil rights causes and its support to the LGBTQ community even before the Stonewall Era. Founders, Reverend Cecil Williams and Janice Mirikitani have been leaders in the struggle for LGBTQ rights in San Francisco since the 1960s, when Reverend Williams began performing same-sex unions and Mirikitani advised and defended LGBT street youth. GLIDE’s participation in the San Francisco Pride Parade goes all the way back to the parade’s beginning in 1970. Today, under the leadership of its founders and Pastors Don Guest and Karen Oliveto, Glide continues to be one of the few churches that consistently march in the SF Pride Parade year-after-year. Last year at the 40th anniversary of the SF Pride Parade, GLIDE was nominated with the honor of “Most Absolutely Fabulous Overall Contingent.”
The GLIDE Pride Team is a 20+ member committee led by the GLIDE Gay/Bi Men’s Group and Glide LBTQII Women’s Group. They are a dynamic group of diverse, creative, highly energetic LGBTQ and “Hetero-fabulous” straight congregation “cheerleaders,” who take great pride in leading GLIDE’s efforts in the SF Pride Parade and other LGBT events. Their mission is to educate the world about social justice, unconditional love and acceptance of the LGBT community.
