Pride Month is an extraordinary time in our city, so we’ve decided to look back through the last 50 years at the monumental events that have occurred during this month.
Pride month began in SF when the San Francisco Gay Liberation marched down Polk Street on June 27th, 1970. Prior to The Castro, the neighborhood now known as “波尔克峡谷” was one of the city’s first gay neighborhoods. The day following the march, hundreds attended a “gay-in” at 高速公路的草地 在金门公园. The following year saw the first actual parade dubbed “Age of Aquarius Parade” down Folsom Street with floats from various groups. The celebration eventually became known as “Gay Freedom Day,” and participants and attendees increased throughout the decade. A theme also was attributed to each year’s celebration and 1979’s “Our Time Has Come” festival boasted over 200,000年参加.
Pride took on new importance throughout the 1980s as the 艾滋病的流行 给ag手机下载带来了损失. 尽管社区面临诸多障碍, 骄傲继续增长, the parade became officially known as the “International Lesbian & 同性恋自由日游行.” The 80s also showed a shift in the movement that was much less radical and encouraged participants to be proud of their identity. This resulted in more groups becoming involved, festivities with song and dance became part of the tradition. 除ag手机下载外的其他主要城市, 纽约, 洛杉矶也抓住了这一传统, Gay Pride celebrations began much more widespread.
Pride一直持续到90年代, the movement dropped the “Freedom Day” name and officially became the SF Pride Parade in 1994. Although 验收 for the movement was growing with Bill Clinton officially claiming June as Pride Month in 1999, parade-goers still experienced protests through much of the decade. 尽管这些抗议活动, hundreds of thousands of attendees began to attend each year, the parade became one of the most well-known in the world.
San Francisco’s Pride Parade officially hit the 1 million attendee mark in 2007 when Market Street was packed for the “Pride, 不是偏见”庆祝活动. 六月现在被宣布为骄傲月, the festivities were no longer limited to one day, 庆祝活动越来越多. Furthermore, new groups began joining the parade, the new 同性恋群体 movement now experienced massive strength in numbers. Protests faded throughout the decade, June was 宣布同性恋月 美国总统巴拉克·奥巴马(Barack Obama)在2009年发表的演讲. The celebration now included a range of events across the city and truly became an international tourist destination that included world-class performances. 结束在转角 市民中心附近的市场和第八大道三一广场是新的 1188任务, 1190任务, 33 8号公寓 are located right in the middle of the Pride action each June
The month of June in San Francisco has now become one of the most beautiful times of the year, with the abundance of color and 验收 that shines across the city. As gay marriage finally passed in California and then nationwide, 庆祝活动变得更加广泛. Millions of travelers from across the world now visit San Francisco in June to be a part of this festival. Rainbow flags have become a staple of not just June, but everyday life in SF as you can now see them flying everywhere from city hall to churches.
While Pride may not be the same in 2020, this wonderful time of the year is still upon us, Pride is very much alive in San Francisco! In June 2020 “Pride, Not Prejudice” takes on an expanded meaning. Recent events demonstrate how our San Francisco community fights prejudice, 不公正, social inequity by coming together peacefully to demand change, 验收, 公平对待所有人.回到博客
