Every June, thousands id not millions of people (local and visiting) come together to celebrate one of San Francisco’s biggest events… SF Pride. Culminating in the parade that draws the crowds, there’s more to this celebration than meets the eye.

 

The Mission of the San Francisco Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Pride Celebration Committee is to educate the world, commemorate our heritage, celebrate our culture, and liberate our people.
