Thanks to Katie Harrar and the 45th Annual San Francisco LGBT Pride Celebration and Parade, All Access Blog will get the opportunity to witness and capture this year’s SF Pride festivities. We get to be a part of the SF Pride Committee’s mission to educate the world, commemorate their heritage, celebrate their culture and liberate their people by engaging in the celebration and showcasing the event on our blog.
LGBT or not, this celebration is for EVERYONE. Come as you are, be proud of who you are and just have fun. Colors of this 2-day glorification range from one end of the color spectrum to the other in people, hair, outfits, and everything in between. For most of the LGBT community, Pride, whether it’s SF Pride, Los Angeles Pride, Atlanta Pride, any Pride, is seen as a right of passage; accepting who you are and knowing that LGBT communities across the globe have your back and most importantly, share the same values as you do.

SF Pride does request a voluntary donation at the entry gates, of $5-$10. Donations go to Pride’s Community Partners Program.
The pride celebration and parade itself, is open to all ages. On Sunday (June 28) there will be a Family Garden, a safe less-crowded area for children/youth and their parents/guardians.
Pets ARE allowed, including service animals of course. However, it is highly suggested that pets are left at home as both the celebration and parade are noisy, crowded and hot. Often, pets are startled by the crowds and sounds of Pride. Also, it may be hard to navigate with pets, through crowds.
More than likely, parking will be too far a distance to the celebration and parade. It’s not worth it. Taking public transportation is strongly encouraged. For transportation to San Francisco from East Bay and other parts of the Bay Area, familiarize yourself with BART.
SF Pride is only 9 days away! Grab your tutus, colored hairspray and tattoo stickers and come enjoy another year of the largest gathering that honors the LGBT community and their supporters. For more information about all things SF Pride 2015, refer to their website: SF Pride.
