Sponsored by the Santa Cruz Pride, this LGBTQ parade and festival strives to promote LGBTQ visibility and increase feelings of self-esteem while providing a common ground for exchanging information, building community and having fun. This day celebrates our positive contributions, our diverse sexualities, our cultures, our families, our accomplishments, our individuality and our ongoing struggle for civil rights and liberation.
Sanctuary Santa Cruz and YARR will have a contingent marching in the parade as well as an information and outreach booth at the festival grounds. Everyone is invited to join our contingent (assembling at 10:30 am on Pacific near Church). Show your solidarity with the LGBTQ community in the parade, then enjoy the festival at Cathcart and Cedar.
Please remember to wear comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, and your very best Pride Costumes and Regalia. We also suggest bringing a bottle of water.
