During our 40th Annual Pride, we are delighted to honor our community's Trailblazers, men and women who paved the path towards equal rights we follow today. Spend some time with our history in an exhibit built to pay tribute to those who raised their voices for justice.
We are putting our Parade to the street with fabulous contingents like Dykes on Bykes, CHEER San Francisco, PFLAG, and Radical Faeries. Special guest contingent of Trailblazers and Lifetime Achievement award winners.
Rally 'round the main stage to give a hand to honorees and award winners. Hostess Kim Luke, mistress of charm and wit,will be introducing performers such as East Bay's Meredith Kate and Santa Cruz favorite Frooty Flavors that will keep the crowd entertained and delighted.
