Thu Jul 4 2013 (Updated 07/06/13)Historic Year for Pride in San Francisco
Thu Jul 4 2013 (Updated 07/06/13)Gay Pride Parade's Bradley Manning Contingent Blocks Military Recruiters
Almost 44 years after Stonewall, when drag queens fought back against a police raid of the Stonewall Bar in New York City, gay marriage is now legal in California. US Supreme Court decisions making gay marriage legal in California and striking down the anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act came just days before a weekend in San Francisco that included a trans march as well as the traditional Gay Pride parade. California's Prop 8 was overturned and the 1996 anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act was struck down, making this year's San Francisco Pride a historic event.
On June 28th, anarchists participating in the annual Trans March hoisted a banner with the slogan "No Pride in Assimilation/No Future in Capitalism". Two days later, 2,000 people marched in a lively Bradley Manning contingent at Pride Sunday, acting in defiance against the Pride board's decision to exclude Manning as Grand Marshal and welcome military recruiters.
After the parade about 100 members of the Manning contingent bolstered by the Brass Liberation Orchestra surrounded a National Guard recruiting booth, effectively insulating Pride attendees from the recruiters.
