San Diego LGBT Pride Festival

As I mentioned in my post about voter registration volunteers, the San Diego LGBT Pride Festival is almost here once again. This year's theme is United for Equality. Come on down and celebrate the 33rd anniversary of San Diego's largest civic event. The parade and festival attract about 150,000 people every year, and it's great fun.

The parade wil be on Saturday, July 21 at 11:00 am and the route is from University Ave between Normal and 6th. It travels down to Ivy Lane, ending near the festival grounds. The festival is on Saturday, from 12 noon-10pm and on Sunday from 11 am-8pm at Marston Point, Balboa Park (6th & Laurel St.) It's $15 for a one day pass and $21 for a two day pass.

I'll be there to register voters again this year (we registered a couple hundred people last year!) and I'll also be helping at the Pride at Work booth with It's Our Healthcare.

Pride at Work is a LGBT constituency group in the AFL-CIO and their purpose is to mobilize mutual support between labor and the LGBT community. This year they're promoting the It's Our Healthcare campaign at the San Diego Pride Festival.

See you there!
