Moving San Francisco With Pride 2021

Thursday, June 3, 2021

Since the city’s first Pride Parade in 1970, the LGBTQ+ community and their allies have been moving San Francisco forward to become a more just, diverse and inclusive place to live, work and enjoy. The half-century long Pride event has served as a celebration and counterpoint to the discrimination and challenges the community has historically faced. And we can all be proud that San Francisco has been a pioneer on such issues as same-sex marriage, health care and anti-hate legislation.

Historically, San Francisco's Pride Parade is the largest in the country with over a million people in attendance, usually including travelers from cities across the country and around the globe celebrating and paying homage to the members of the LGBTQ+ community. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, Pride will look different this year with a focus on Bay Area participants.  

Recognizing the strides and achievements made by the LGBTQ+ community over more than five decades, the SFMTA’s theme for 2021 is "Moving San Francisco with Pride.” As home to one of the world's largest and most prominent LGBTQ+  communities, we look forward to celebrating Pride all month long.
