All The Pride Weekend Protests And Rallies In The Bay Area
San Francisco’s very first Pride march was 50 years ago this weekend (as it was in many U.S. cities), and the local LGBTQ+ community will still act up this weekend with COVID-19 safety measures in place. Yes, there will still be Pride demonstrations in the Bay Area all weekend long. This is not your standard Trans March, Dyke March, and Pride Parade formula for an SF Pride weekend, but more like the enormous Black Trans Lives Matter demonstration we saw in Brooklyn earlier this month, with social distancing and masks in full effect.
Important note: We’re seeing spikes in COVID right now so, while attending all these Bay Area protests, it’s important to protect yourself and others. Make sure to wear masks, use hand sanitizer, and social distance yourself as much as possible. It’s also important to get free testing for COVID, even though you might not be showing symptoms. Learn all about how to get free testing right here.
