San Francisco Gay Pride 2013
This past weekend was PRIDE WEEKEND in San Francisco. San Francisco Gay Pride is like no other. This was the first time I’ve participated in a gay pride celebration, but after this weekend it will not be my last.
I believe there were several events on Friday, but I rested up after work because I knew that I was going to participate on Saturday and Sunday.
On Saturday, the festival took place at the Civic Center/City Hall area of town. It was jam-packed with festival goers. The LGBT community was represented as well as the Heterosexual community. There was no H8te from what I saw. It was just one big party where everyone danced, ate, partied and celebrated who they are regardless of their sexuality.
That lasted all day and it was a lot of fun meeting new people.
Then on Sunday, the event everyone was waiting for; The Pride Parade. I arrived at 10am (to get a spot right in front). Shortly after me the crowds smashed in to get a good view of the parade that started on time at 10:30am. This parade was so fun, interesting, entertaining and long. It lasted for about 5 hours or longer.
Following the parade I made my way (with my bag full of free parade swag) back to the festival area and enjoyed some good music and the people of San Francisco Gay Pride 2013.
