Pride Parade SDSU Contingency?2020-09-29

Pride Parade 2019

Join the SDSU Contingency

San Diego’s Pride Parade is the largest single-day civic event in the region and is among the largest Prides in the United States, attracting over 200,000 cheering supporters of the LGBTQ community.

The Parade finds its roots in June of 1974, when a four-hundred-person march was held in Balboa Park. The parade has seen history change, and in turn, has changed with history. In 2012, the parade celebrated the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” with the first active duty military contingent marching in uniform, capturing the local, national and global media spotlight. In 2014, it celebrated the 40th Anniversary of the San Diego Pride.

This year, the parade honors the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, which are widely considered the most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBT rights in the United States.

 

Join A.S. students and staff members by being a part of the San Diego State University contingency, register on the SDSU Pride Center’s website.
