Celebrate the LGBTQ+ Community and Join Us in the 2022 San Francisco Pride Parade

It’s June–school is out, summer is in full-swing—and across the nation all month long we acknowledge, honor, and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community with Pride awareness, advocacy, and events.

This year, LightHouse is honored to, once again, extend an invitation to all LGBTQ+ community members, their families, friends, and allies as we march in the 52nd annual Pride Parade in San Francisco on Sunday, June 26. We will proudly commemorate LGBTQ+ heritage as well as raise awareness for the needs of LGBTQ+ people with disabilities. Join us in marching side-by-side or come to the LightHouse headquarters at 1155 Market Street to watch a live stream of the parade with audio description. Once the parade is over, and our contingency arrives at LightHouse, we will commence the Pride After-Party, serving snacks and refreshments. This is a celebration you won’t want to miss!

The celebration runs from Sunday, June 26, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

Registration for the LightHouse Pride celebration will be required for all participants, whether they want to walk the parade route or watch from our LightHouse Headquarters at 1155 Market Street. There will also be opportunities for those who wish to volunteer. We will host a live stream of the parade, complete with an audio description. When our contingent finishes marching the parade and arrives at LightHouse, we will commence the Pride after-party, offering light snacks and refreshments. This is a celebration not to be missed!
