About the San Francisco Pride Celebration

San Francisco Pride has been said to be "one of the last remaining pride events that can truly be called a rite of passage." 2010 marks the 40th anniversary of the San Francisco Pride Celebration and Parade.

The event will be held over the weekend of June 26 and 27, 2010 in the Civic Center of downtown San Francisco. With over 200 parade contingents, 300 exhibitors, and 19 stages and venues, the San Francisco LGBT Pride Celebration and Parade is the largest LGBT gathering in the nation. The San Francisco Pride Celebration is packed with a wide variety of exhibitors, artists, music of all kinds, performers, dance stages and venues, and fun. There really is something here for everyone.

The Celebration at Civic Center is host to our Main Stage where in 2009 Asian pop sensation BoA wowed Pride-goers with new beats alongside Solange Knowles and the Cliks and where in 2008, attendees saw Lady Gaga, Margaret Cho, Kat DeLuna, Inaya Day, Crystal Waters, speakers from the marriage equality movement, and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, among others.

2010 Event Theme

The event theme for the 40th annual San Francisco Pride Celebration & Parade was selected by Pride's Membership. Acknowledging the need for celebration in the wake of Prop 8, the membership selected "Forty and Fabulous" from a slate of 51 potential themes, each submitted by community members and members of Pride. Member Richard Kravitz, who submitted the winning theme, explained his submission, "I thought that we needed something fun. Last year, I told Executive Director Lindsey Jones that the theme for next year should be ‘Forty and Fabulous.’ She said to submit it, and so I did."
