SAN FRANCISCO PRIDE EVENT
One of the biggest—and oldest—LGBTQ Pride events in the United States is the San Francisco Pride Celebration and Parade, which takes place over the last full weekend in June each year.
This multi-day event commemorates the June 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City's Greenwich Village, which jumpstarted the gay rights movement of the 1970s. As part of the celebration, more than 200 parade groups and floats as well as hundreds of vendors and organizations gather at Civic Center and march down Market Street between Beale and 8th streets.
