Official Hillcrest Pride Flag Raising and Spirit of Stonewall Rally…JULY 20, 6PM

Official Hillcrest Pride Flag Raising and Spirit of Stonewall Rally

IF YOU CAN,

 TRY TO BE APART OF HONORING THOSE PIONEERS BEFORE US ….

San Diego Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Pride

 proudly continues the tradition of holding the Spirit of Stonewall Rally on Friday, July 20 at 6:00 pm.

This year the rally returns to the heart of Hillcrest being held at Harvey Milk and Normal Streets.

 The theme of the… event which kicks off the weekend of celebration is: “America’s Pride”

because equality is an American value!

 Pride celebrations everywhere trace their heritage to the eventful evening of June 28, 1969

 when patrons of the Stonewall Inn in New York City said “No more!” to the harassing tactics of the New York Police.

That protest has grown to annual events held in major cities throughout the world.

In San Diego, our first rally was held in 1975.

Today, across the world we still face challenges to our diverse community.

The Stonewall Rally is a call to re-energize the Spirit of Stonewall

and focus our energy on the new wave and next generation of the LGBT movement and LGBT activism.

San Diego Pride has invited Dr. Clarence B. Jones as the keynote speaker for this year’s Rally.

 Dr. Jones served as personal legal counsel to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

and helped draft the acclaimed “I Have A Dream” speech.

The Spirit of Stonewall Rally is also a time to recognize and honor some of the people who are working hard to preserve our gains

and to meet the challenges of equal marriage rights,

 the freedom to serve our country without fear of reprisal, and safe schools for our young people.

San Diego will erect it’s own 65′ pride flag

on July 20th immediately after the

Stonewall Rally!

 Save the date and join us!!!
