Every day at LightHouse we’re working to redefine the way people think about blindness, and this year for San Francisco Pride we’re again widening our scope to the whole disability community. For us, Pride is about reclaiming the word ‘disabled’ and joining together as a community to make it clear that disabled, whatever that means to you, is an identity to be proud of.
We’d like to extend an invitation to all disabled LGBTQ+ community members, their families, friends and allies to march with us as we commemorate LGBTQ+ heritage, celebrate LGBTQ+ culture and raise awareness for the needs of LGBTQ+ people with disabilities at this year’s San Francisco Pride on June 30, 2019.
Register now for this year’s Pan-Disabled Contingent, “Be Seen”. Details about the LightHouse community celebration following the parade and live-described viewing party to come.
