The San Francisco Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Celebration Committee is excited to announce the 44th Annual San Francisco LGBT Pride Parade and Celebration (SF Pride), to take place Saturday and Sunday, June 28th and 29th. Annually, the two-day event is the largest free gathering of LGBT people and allies in the nation; with nearly 300 exhibitors, and more than 20 community-produced stages and venues. The crown jewel of the weekend is the Pride Parade on Sunday morning; and with over 230 contingents registered for 2014, organizers are planning for another spectacular year. Notes George Ridgely, Executive Director of SF Pride, “As with each celebration, we are honored to dedicate a weekend of merriment and commemoration to the courageous work of the LGBT community members and supporters who tirelessly advocate for equality and inclusion every day of the year.”
