San Francisco Pride

The City Where Everyone Is Welcome!

Officially known as the "The San Francisco Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Celebration", this main event is part of many smaller events that make up the Pride Celebrations. June is a big month for the Pride festivities in San Francisco, as almost all of the big festivals, parades and marches take place during this time. With great weather, friends, costumes and music, the events can't help but get bigger and better.

Get Ready To Party!

Most of them run for days on end and include musical guests from all over as well as after parties that go well into the next day. In fact, you really can't tell when one stops and another begins!

Generally, Pride Week (or day, or weekend in some places) starts with an opening party which is followed by a number of outdoor events. It's also a great time for organizations to plan parties around different issues such as safe-sex, gay positive vacationing, and all sorts of other great stuff. You never really know what you're going to get into during Pride, but generally one can count on at least a few topless revelers as well as floats full of great costumes, body painting and at the very least, minimal clothing. Beer-tents scattered throughout the closed-off areas don't hurt, either.

Booking your Pride vacation should be done in advance as the bigger events always play host to hundreds of thousands of tourists and hotels are sure to fill up quick. As we said earlier, Pride Festivals go on everywhere but the bigger ones in June are: Santa Cruz, Los Angeles, San Jose, Toronto, (Canada), New York City, Ghent (Belgium), Budapest (Hungary) and, of course, San Francisco. So take the trip, take some pictures or some video (or both) and send it our way - we want to see how you celebrate Pride!

The San Francisco Pride Celebration draws over one million attendees during the two days of the event, making it the largest annual gathering of LGBT people in the US. 30,000 convenient pocket-sized booklets will be distributed individually to attendees on June 26 and June 27, 2010 at the 40th annual San Francisco Pride Celebration and Parade. The event guide contains information about Pride events, including maps, a parade contingent line-up, a list of exhibitors and their booth locations, sponsors, and entertainment schedules.

EVENT ATTITUDE TO NUDITY:

City officials tend to allow the parade participants to be as naked as they want to be as long as they aren't lewd.

EVENT ATTITUDE TO CAMERAS:

Very open and everyone is welcome to shoot whatever they want as this is a completely public event.
