San Diego Pride kicks off local events

SAN DIEGO COUNTY, Calif. — For the last 31 years, San Diego has been celebrating Pride Month in July. 

Back in 1990, San Diego LGBT Pride made the executive decision to move Pride Month to July, due to "June Gloom" raining on all of the festivities. 

San Diego Pride has had many firsts, such as, being the first Lesbian and Gay Parade in San Diego to celebrate the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion on New York's Christopher Street. And in 2012, San Diego Pride made history by becoming the first Pride Parade to have US service members march in uniform.

"Nearly one year after the repeal of 'Don't Ask Don't Tell,' this celebratory moment had many servicemembers come in from all over the United States to march proudly, with full approval from the Department of Defense, and without fear of discipline or discharge," said San Diego Pride in a Facebook post. "Pictured here is an active duty servicemember proposing to their partner near the end of the Parade route."

The San Diego Pride helps raise funds through festival tickets, vendors, sponsors, and exhibit fees that help support San Diego Pride's community philanthropy. 

According to San Diego Pride's website, the non-profit organization has distributed more than $2.5 million in advancement of its mission to foster pride, equality, and respect for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities locally, nationally, and globally. 

San Diego Pride will be hosting events throughout the month of July. Here is a full list of events.
