It’s San Diego Gay Pride weekend!

Out & About

Gay flag in Hillcrest, San Diego, CaliforniaThis weekend is Gay Pride weekend in San Diego.

If you ask yourself why we have Gay Pride weekends in virtually every major city throughout the world, well,

  • as soon as we can get married to the person we love throughout the world;
  • walk down the streets holding hands;
  • make out under the street lamp on the corner like so many straight couples do;
  • put pictures of our loved ones on our desks and walls at work;
  • U.S. and Gay Pride flagsall with nary a second thought….

well, we might not need a Gay Pride weekend anymore. Until then….

This might be the first San Diego Gay Pride weekend that I have missed completely since my first one in 1993.

So here are some pictures of past Gay Pride weekends:

San Diego Gay Pride Weekend is one of the few 3-day gay pride events in the world and, because of our weather and the beaches, is always well-attended. They were expecting around 200,000 people for the 2-hour parade this morning, and more for the festival today and tomorrow, ranking it as San Diego’s largest civic event.

    Great photos Russel.
    As you (may) know, I spent almost five years in San Diego. Always loved that town. (But I was truly glad when it came time to come home to Texas).
    Anyway, my favorite shot is the one with the sign, “When do I get to vote on your civil rights?”
    And my next favorite: “Proud Ally!” That’s the one I would have been carrying.
