There Will Be Another Protest March On Pride Sunday This Year

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

People who are fed up with the corporatization of Pride, and know that Pride is sponsored by corporations that give money to anti-LGBTQ Republicans threw a protest rally and march last year called People’s March and Rally. And while there is no Pride Parade this year, the Bay Area Reporter has the news that there will be another People’s March and Rally in 2021, on the same Sunday when the Pride Parade is normally held.  

“2nd ANNUAL PEOPLE’S MARCH & RALLY – Unite to Fight! on Sunday, June 27th, is a vision we have had for some time,”  organizers say on their GoFundMe page. “To take SF Pride back to its roots and original route of 51 years ago, to keep police and corporations out of Pride, and make a way for ALL of our Trans and Queer Black, Brown and Indigenous family to attend.”

“It needs to happen again,” co-organizer Juanita MORE! told the Bay Area Reporter. “A lot of the feedback we got last year is that it felt like the reason Pride happened in the first place. I do need to go to my party as well, so that will happen at some point in the day.”

“We will roar our voices in solidarity with our Black, Brown, and Indigenous trans and queer family, friends, lovers, and neighbors,” organizers said in a release. “We will show up in droves with amplified voices to advocate for the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, denounce and condemn police violence against our communities, and raise awareness for the need to defund police departments, which will allow for funds to be reallocated to social services, mental healthcare providers, and social justice organizations.”

The 2nd Annual People’s March & Rally – Unite to Fight! is Sunday, June 27th at 11 a.m. at Polk and Washington Streets, and will march from there to the Castro. You can support the event on their GoFundMe page
