Jun 30 –
We are excited to announce that LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired will march in the 49th annual San Francisco Pride Parade on Sunday, June 30! The San Francisco Pride Parade’s mission is to educate the world, commemorate LGBT+ heritage, celebrate LGBT+ culture and liberate LGBT+ people. This aligns with LightHouse’s mission to promote equality and self-reliance for people who are blind or visually impaired, and promotes the visibility of LGBT+ blind and disabled people.
The LightHouse is committed to inclusivity. Blindness intersects with every single identity, and we recognize the need to amplify the voices of disabled LGBT+ people and our community members. LightHouse is proud to open our doors and extend an invitation to all disabled LGBT+ community members, their families, friends, allies and the organizations that serve them. Join us as we celebrate the intersectionality of people who are blind, have low vision, have other disabilities, and the many community members who identify with both communities or actively want to support LGBT+ visibility. It’s a central part of our blind experience to be seen, be heard and to be proud of who we are!
There are two options for participating with us:
- You can march with us in the parade from Embarcadero to Civic Center (about one and a half miles) as a large contingent
- You can celebrate with us at LightHouse headquarters at 1155 Market Street, 10th Floor where we have a view of Market Street. We’ll have a live stream of the parade as well as a volunteer providing audio description
After the parade, all registered participants are welcome to join the celebration at LightHouse (1155 Market St. 10th floor) for light refreshments. Only those registered will be allowed into the building so spread this link far and wide! All are welcome!
