SF Pride 2012
We have the ins and outs of everything SF Pride 2012
First thing, first!
What is SF Pride 2012?
Let's go back into time. June 28, 1969, the police raided the Stonewall Inn in New York's Greenwich Village which sparked the Stonewall riots. This was one of the first well-known instances of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rebellion. One year later to the date, on June 28, 1970 the first Pride was held in San Francisco, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
Back to the present SF Pride 2012 marks the 42nd anniversary of the San Francisco Pride Celebration and Parade. Now, that's what we call history with personality.
