It's unclear exactly when Pride Parades evolved from solemn marches to exuberant celebrations, but here we are in 2018, where love is love and gay marriage is finally legal. Pride Weekend is upon us, and it’s time for rainbows to fly over the streets of Hillcrest as we honor those hard fought victories with one of the best Pride Parades in the nation. The weekend’s activities are organized by San Diego Pride, a non-profit whose stated mission is “fostering pride, equality, and respect for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities locally, nationally, and globally.”
San Diego’s Pride Parade attracts more than 200,000 attendees and participants, and navigating your way through it all can be challenging. Use our handy guide for all the relevant details, and have a safe, fabulous, Pride-filled weekend!
